MAKE OUR PAPER RECYCLING EASIER!

MAKE OUR PAPER RECYCLING EASIER!

We want you to allow the use of green recycling bins for paper rubbish, so long as it is kept in a separate bin from the standard recycling.

Why is this important?

The rules state that our paper collection is to be put into plastic bags or into boxes yet not everyone has these on hand to use. It is tidy and still easy to handle if the paper is put into a bin on it's own. A bonus is that the bin is reusable and environmentally friendly. Using plastic bags or boxes for paper collection is not always convenient. Being able to use a bin for our paper makes it easier for the consumer while still keeping it tidy and separate from other rubbish. We should be able to have choices that are convenient for all since this is a service we pay for with our rates.

Reasons for signing

  • Because the system that is now in place is stupid. If you have 2 recycling bins one should be able to be used for paper only.
