Horse-power: urban domestic recycling and the development of sustainable local community structures

Case-study of an urban recycling scheme, starting in the city of Leicester, which met with astounding success. The proposal of using horse-drawn carriages to collect recyclable materials from home is being developed as the horse-drawn carriages are accepted locally for other tasks such as for fairs, weddings and tourism. The advantages of the recyling scheme have included environmental awareness, using fewer fuel-based vehicles for tranporting materials, less pollution and less landfill or incineration. The project also has many disadvantages such as possible animal rights claims and traffic hazards.
