Here’s the reply from councillor Steve Burgess Hi Caroline, Here’s an explanation about LDPE materials. Regards Steve —————– Steve Burgess Green Cllr Southside-Newington Ward Dear Councillor Burgess. I refer to the email trail below, and can advise that the waste management industry is typically reluctant to accept plastic bags as part of kerbside and household recycling due to the issues of the plastic causing equipment failures (it wraps round the sorting equipment) and causes contamination of other streams. Similarly the plastics industry prefers to collect it through the collection network operated by the major retailers which is cheaper and offers them better quality. Most large supermarkets operate banks for LDPE bags, wrappers, etc. These are now often labelled as “check locally” or “not at kerbside” using the industry wide On Pack Labelling Scheme, as in the example below. We have no plans to add this material to our own recycling services at present. I hope this helps. Yours sincerely Angus

Has been blogging. Although most of my post are quite short. I’ll have probably spent about half an hour thinking about what to write. Tonight I got a lesson on word press from Alison about using the site. I’ve now got categories and tags. I spent about two hours updating my site.
