A campaign which aims to reduce the amount of rubbish thrown away by residents has been officially launched by the council.

Slim Jim, the face of the Slim Your Bin drive, greeted visitors to the Play in the Park event at Barking Park yesterday.

On average every household in Barking and Dagenham thows out almost one tonne of non-recyclable waste each year – almost twice as much as some London boroughs.
