Edinburgh council reject all sorts of plastic from straws to food trays. And the odd thing is that they collect plastic and cardboard on the same day and both are thrown into the back of the same lorry.
But I have long given up trying to understand my local councils actions. I emailed a question as to why they sent the gulley cleaning vehicles out on a Sunday morning when the roads have far more parked cars. As yet,some 6 months hence ,I still await a reply.
