Paper - any paper/cardboard - must be put into a plastic "Foodtown" bag or wont be taken. So even if I stack the paper altogether nicely and tie it up with string or some other environmentally friendly material, or even have it all in a small cardboard box, they refuse to take it.
Plastic/glass - must be put into the blue bins and be "clean" (can kind of understand that). Some weekends we have friends around and the bins get full, so we put the excess into bags. They wont take the bags.
It seems completely stupid to me, putting paper recycling into a plastic bag, and refusing to take plastic with other plastic......
Anyone know why this is ?
