It’s time producers cut down on unnecessary packaging

Have your say

So the government’s pledge to invest £250m to restore once-a-week bin collections has now been signed up to by 80 councils – apparently in response to people’s complaints (they find it too hard to remember which bin to put out – recycling or normal).

Oh, come on. That’s such a load of rubbish. You must be pretty dense not to be able to glance at your neighbours’ bins and see what they’ve opted for on a given day. Surely not everyone on a street is forgetful?

Or what about simply looking into your bins and seeing which one has the most stuff in it?

I think we’d be better off investing the money in making food producers cut down on unnecessary packaging. That way we wouldn’t need to throw so much out.
