Recycling

THE response by Ken Sale on the subject of food caddy liners is a gross distortion of my position on recycling which is 100pc in favour and I am delighted Waveney District Council is at the forefront of such initiatives.

THE response by Ken Sale on the subject of food caddy liners is a gross distortion of my position on recycling which is 100pc in favour and I am delighted Waveney District Council is at the forefront of such initiatives. What I was objecting to was having to pay for the liners and questioning why raw vegetable waste could not be placed directly in the green bin.

It is calculated that a third of all food purchased is thrown away.

Some waste is inevitable during preparation and I have never seen any figures for this but clearly there are considerable opportunities for shoppers to save significant amounts of money by more realistic purchasing and reduce the subsequent production of waste.
