PIONEERING recycling ideas have earned Bexley four successes in this year's National Recycling Awards.

Bexley, which is London's top borough for recycling, won awards in all the categories it entered.

It won best local authority initiative for its work with the borough's Sikh Gurdwara in Mitchell Close, Belvedere, where nearly 3,000 residents worship.

As well as teaching and worship, the temple also runs a daily free kitchen which generates lots of boxes, cans, jars, and vegetable waste.

Working with the council, the gurdwara now reycles 80 per cent of its rubbish.
