Clean up your act

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

IWAS dis­ap­pointed and ex­as­per­ated by a BBC Break­fast news re­port that Swin­don Bor­ough Coun­cil has told its res­i­dents they needn’t bother to sep­a­rate their plas­tic waste from gen­eral house­hold waste. We un­der­stand that it will be in­cin­er­ated in fu­ture. The prob­lem seems to re­volve around sort­ing the waste into re­cy­clable plas­tic.

Can’t be done? Chelms­ford in Es­sex has a good record at re­cy­cling plas­tic, so why is there no cross ref­er­ence be­tween the best and worst coun­ties? This grow­ing prob­lem needs to be tack­led by ev­ery­one in a po­si­tion of au­thor­ity at county level and, if found want­ing, the reg­u­la­tor should in­ter­vene. It just needs the will and re­solve to keep our na­tion clean. Den­nis An­drews, Es­sex
