Re­cy­cling should be made eas­ier

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Letters And Opinion -

I live in a small block of flats and we had four large blue lid­ded bins and four large red lid­ded bins for the ten­ants of the 18 flats (Poor re­cy­cling rate, March 23).

In Jan­uary two years ago we had the bins re­moved be­cause some con­tam­i­na­tion got into them (plas­tic bags). We weren’t warned be­fore it hap­pened and we weren’t told af­ter it had hap­pened.

It was only by chas­ing the coun­cil we found out why they were taken away. On three oc­ca­sions the coun­cil had been asked for lit­er­a­ture which could be given to the ten­ants.

Prom­ises were made but never kept. We use to be able to take re­cy­cling to Asda car park where we re­cy­cled paper, cans and bot­tles but those con­tain­ers have all been re­moved.

Some of us would like to re­cy­cle but the coun­cil don’t make it easy. Richard Har­vey Old Park Court, Can­ter­bury
