@misshoptop @OneTrafford Hi Anna, You can find more information on our website about why we can only recycle plastic bottles and not other plastics in Greater Manchester. recycleforgreatermanchester.c…
😯Wow! What a great idea! twitter.com/Plastic_Shed/s…
@OwainAlty Yes , plastic is made of oil. What we mean is virgin fossil fuels. Sorry this wasn't clear.
56% of people in Greater Manchester put at least one item in the general waste that could be recycled. Make sure you are recycling right for #GlobalRecyclingDay 🌎recycleforgreatermanchester.c… twitter.com/DefraGovUK/sta…
@ChapmanTheCat @SalfordCouncil @ManCityCouncil @TraffordCouncil @TamesideCouncil @StockportMBC @BuryCouncil @OldhamCouncil @boltoncouncil @OneTrafford Most pots, tubs and trays are made of low grade plastics and there is not a sustainable market for recycling these. By using them to make electricity means we are relying less on burning fossil fuels. Plastic bottles are high grade plastic, so these can be recycled.
