Here's the cafe, and you can just make out three bins in the photo - green, yellow and red
Here's a close up of the red one, sponsored by Walls

Also within throwing distance is this big bin
and these two bins - dog poo and, is it finally the recycling bin?
Nope, a general litter bin
It may be that all rubbish collected on Tooting Common is sorted for recycling, or maybe a clause in the cafe's lease requires the managers to extract recyclable items within a 100m radius of the cafe (in either case why not say 'waste and recycling bins').
Or maybe none of the plastic bottles, aluminium cans etc. are recycled from here at all. Maybe the litter dropped on the ground is sorted for recycling, which is why people drop it near all these bins.
Who knows? Who cares?
