Kerbside Collection of Plastic Bottles:If you want it, demand it!
If you want SITA to collect your plastic bottles from your home along with the green box, make sure you make this clear in your response to South Glos. Council's 'Local Waste Strategy 2008 to 2014' consultation document.
The consultation form is designed to make this difficult!
The only way to do it is to answer NO to the question 'Do you support our current policy of collecting plastic bottles using a network of local recycling banks?'. Then in the space for the answer to the next request 'Please tell us where you think we should install addition plastic bottle banks' write 'We want kerbside collection of plastic bottles'.
Copies of the consultation form can be obtained from local libraries or you can reply online. The deadline for responses is 31 March.
