So this week see’s the start of Midlothian Council’s NEW recycling plans. Don’t get me wrong, we are big into recycling here and we have been since I worked at Friends of the Earth. We have always recycled everything we can.
But this week instead of getting a weekly collection we move from using our little boxes below to our massive blue wheelie bin.
As I say I know why we do it, but after having a play date yesterday and two days at home with the kids I realised just how much recyclate we are actually collecting, having to wash out and then put into our big blue wheelie bin (pic below). The wheelie bin will now take everything:
- Aerosol cans
- Food packaging
