Separate plastic film waste | Help cut the South West's CO2 emissions
A staggering 50% of plastic is not recyclable; black plastic food trays, cling film, cellophane, crisp packets and plastic pouches to name just a few. But, if we worked to separate these plastics, we could slash the South West's CO2 emissions and improve recycling rates.
When we’re busy it can be tempting to chuck everything into one big bin bag - however, if we take the time to separate out plastics it means they can be treated in a way that limits the carbon emissions being released into the atmosphere and reduces pollution.
By separating out the following types of plastics we can help to boost the region's recycling rates and the council can manage these plastics more cost effectively and efficiently.
