Public recycle bins for cans and plastic in towns, parks and residential streets that are litter hotspots.
I regularly pick up litter on Leigh Road and Hospital Road, Pontypool and have the green TCBC bags to leave on the kerbside for collection. It occurred to me that nearly all of the litter is recyclable. I’m not sure if the green bags are sorted for recycling once collected or just sent to landfill. Having public recycle bins for cans and plastic in town centres, parks and on residential streets that are litter hotspots would encourage recycling. Interestingly there is not 1 litter bin on the roads I litter pick.
Why the contribution is important
This would help Torfaen reach their target for recycling as much as possible.
