4/6/09 – All Plastic Recycling Scheme 1st July
Cllr Dale Heenan, “Poll day for the European Elections is nearly over, but the work of a local Councillor never is. I have received confirmation that a new “all plastics” recycling scheme will launch on the 1st of July.
Full details will be covered in the next issue of Swindon News and my July Stratton Outlook article, but the Council will be able to recycle any clear or white plastic bag which can be used. This will include bleach bottles, motor oil containers, the plastic trays you get from the supermarket, the plastic wrap you get magazines in etc.. The
one exception is the dark black plastic you get microwave meals in
because the plastic sorting equipment uses lasers to grade the plastic
and the black cannot be graded at the moment.”
