Re­cy­cling rid­dle

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -


When I re­trieved my re­cy­cling bin I found a no­tice at­tached to the bin, along with most bins on the street, ask­ing for us to sort our re­cy­cling into plas­tic bags.

Surely the whole point of re­cy­cling is to re­duce the use of plas­tic bags, and we do, by us­ing our cloth-type shop­ping bags so we don’t have plas­tic shop­ping bags to sort our waste into.

Are Allbrite ad­vo­cat­ing we go out and ditch our cloth-type shop­ping bags or, heaven for­bid, buy plas­tic bags just so we can ac­com­mo­date their request?

If it is such a big deal then per­haps they should sup­ply bins with com­part­ments in them.

Or maybe re­cy­cling could be done prop­erly which would mean the ac­tual re­cy­cling of the soft plas­tic bags? - LINDA SCOTT,
