So I am putting the bins out again and paper is going into the recycling, and bottles and cans are going into the recycling, but a carrier bag of bits of food and plastic wrappings are just going into the dumpster to go straight to the land fill. I find I am always standing over the bin thinking that it is a shame that this lid off this container or a plastic film or yogurt pot is not supposed to go into the recycling. Some of them even say that the card sleeve can be recycled but not the plastic wrap which is 'currently not recycleable'.
I understand that there are different types of plastic that may be more or less easy to recycle, but surely not all drinks bottles are the same type. Why can't we recycle virtually everything these days?
