Introduction

GCSE HUMANITIES COURSEWORK: IS BRENT DEALING ADEQUATELY WITH ITS ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS? For my GCSE Humanities coursework, I will be observing how or if Brent is dealing adequately with its environmental problems. Brent is a borough in North West London.

This also makes things convenient for them. New industries, warehousing and offices development are expected to take part in recycling and the collection of waste. Brent has improved in its recycling since December 2005. 'Brent achieved a 21% recycling rate in December 2005.
