Councils binning black and coloured sacks in recycling bins !

See these exciting videos  on Youtube,,   and

From now on, your green bin will be emptied only if the recycling in it is loose or in clear sacks so the operators can see what is there, and if there is a black or coloured or white bag the bin will be left.

Despite a recent campaign to raise awareness of the issue, some people are still putting in things like food waste and dirty nappies, contaminating whole truckloads of recycling - when these things are put into recycling bins in black or coloured sacks they’re not spotted until it’s too late. 

If there’s a sack in a recycling bin and the waste crews can’t see what’s in it, they’ll have to assume it contains contamination and won’t empty it.
