International "Plastic bag free day" Thursday 3rd July

Thursday 3rd July is international plastic bag free day.  This is the perfect time to make a Green Pledge to avoid using more of them by taking a bag with you when you go shopping.  If you do pledge to avoid carrier bags and would like a free cloth bag (featuring the slogan "This is my pledge") to help you stick to it, please email greenpledge@wandsworth.gov.uk (subject to stocks).

Remember that plastic carrier bags can be recycled at large supermarkets along with clean plastic packaging films bearing this logo:

 

 

 

 

 

Please also remember that the only types of plastic that can be included in clear recycling sacks and orange-lidded recycling banks are plastic bottles, pots tubs and trays.  Any food remains should be rinsed off and tops/lids should be removed and disposed of with your general rubbish.

With thanks for your recycling efforts!
