Environmental Inequality: Where Does London Rubbish Go After Collection?

In the last decade, the city of London has given a lot of volume to the topic of recycling and environmental responsibility. Rubbish regulations between London councils and residents have increased, recycling rates have grown and the new COP 21 agreement has reached a very optimistic target for the UK's waste management program.
