Rotherham Council Start Recycling Plastic

Rotherham Council Start Recycling Plastic

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.

Reasons for signing

  • It’s crazy that plastic is not currently recycled and you have to drive your waste to a site! Particularly when plastic forms the majority of household waste.
  • If Rotherham council bring in there proposed changes to bin collections which I might add are ridiculous, reducing the size of the black bins !people are gong to struggle to get all there waste in a smaller bin .Not everyone has the option of visiting the tip with excess waste .
  • This needs to happen. We need plastic recycling collections in Rotherham
