Cllr Rachel Woods: Let’s capture the enthusiasm for recycling during Recycling Week

Wednesday 26 September 2018

Cllr Rachel Woods has said that people are more aware than ever about the problem of plastic and has urged manufacturers to reduce the level of plastic packaging.

The call comes during Recycling Week and as recycling rates continue to rise across the Borough.

Cllr Woods continued: “We need to capture the enthusiasm that people have for recycling.

“People are more aware than ever of the need to recycle and of the damage plastic waste inflicts.

“It can be difficult to know what plastic can be recycled and what we shouldn’t be sending to be recycled.

“I call on manufactures to take a serious approach to reducing plastic packaging.

“People want to recycle as much as they can, they should be empowered to do so.”
