Organise plastic recycling collections even if it means alternating the garden waste (green bin) collection.
Why is this important?
Most other councils countrywide have a plastic recycling scheme which benefits the environment greatly and as most of you know plastic takes hundreds if not thousands of years to biodegrade. With so many recyclable plastic cartons and bottles going into household waste every week it's disappointing to see that Rotherham Council have yet to catch up with the rest of the country in finding an initiative to collect recyclable plastic like they have for metal, glass, paper and garden waste.
Further to this the infrastructure is already in place to recycle plastic with numberous recycling plants in the surrounding area and local councils such as sheffield already implementing a more environmentally friendly scheme. So with enough support we can petition Rotherham Council to take this issue seriously and serve a much needed facility to their constiuents.
