Recycling bins

Recycling bins

Commit to ensuring all local council litter bins are replaced with dual purpose 'mixed recycling/general waste' bins by 2021.

Why is this important?

Plastic bottles, free newspapers and packaged food on-the-go are everywhere on our public transport and on our streets. The government should ensure that everyone has the opportunity to contribute to improving the UK's recycling rates but many of our public litter bins don't have a recycling option. It wouldn't be difficult to commit to ensuring local councils replaced these outdated bins with dual purpose options, as seen in some areas of London, within a reasonable time-frame.
