DRIV­ING DOWN PLAS­TIC WASTE

YOURS (UK) - - The View From Yours -

A pi­o­neer­ing green scheme that al­lows city cen­tre driv­ers to pay for pricey park­ing with plas­tic bot­tles has just been launched. Hand­ing in an empty bot­tle of at least 500ml ca­pac­ity is worth 20p off at the Mer­rion Cen­tre car park in Leeds. Hun­dreds have al­ready been handed in and will be re­cy­cled into items such as toys and fur­ni­ture. Any­thing that re­duces plas­tic waste has to be a good idea.
