Dismay as council replaces biodegradable food waste bags with plastic sacks – UKPosted on March 26, 2018 by DrRossH in General, Plastic Limiting Regulations
Swansea’s new food waste sacks are now made from plastic and will be burned the same way the compostable bags were
A very uneducated move by the council. The issue with plastic bags is them getting into the ocean. To say that every bag handed out will get to the WTE plant is simply not possible. Some will get loose in the environment and end up in the sea. The council move is not a good move at all. Compostable were no better as they do not biodegrade except in a commercial compost facility.
