Cotswold Dispute Council leader The cart Harris has given a big like this to the new scheme.
Joe said: “Recycling plastic is very much in the news, certainly not least because of the impact discarded lastics is having on our planet.
“This kind of initiative is to be welcome, as anything that can reduce the amount of garbage plastic has to be good for the environment.
“Although some plastics might be routinely collected for recycling, other, like sweet wrappers and coloured plastic bags have proved harder to help recycle and as someone who loves crisps and sweets this looks like a notably positive step forward and means We have got a (slightly! ) sharper conscience.
“I hope that people will take advantage of this new possiblity to dispose of these traditionally hard to find their way forms of plastic and the new administering at Cotswold District Council is going to improve and appear at ways in which we can provide a parejo service for residents at all of my offices. ”
