COMMUTERS at a railway station are the first in the country to recycle their bottles, cans and newspapers on the platform.
Bromley South station is now home to clear plastic recycling bins, installed as a joint venture between Southeastern, Metro newspapers, Bromley council and the charity Recycle Zone. The green launch on Tuesday came as the train company which operates the station, Southeastern, launches a campaign, "Making your A to B as green as can be."
Representatives from the partnership behind the scheme were joined by London Assembly member James Cleverly at a ceremony at the station. Erika Coghlan, from Recycle Zone, said: "While people are recycling more at home it hasn't been as easy for them to recycle when 'on-the-go', particularly when travelling by train, as recycling facilities have not been as readily available.
