YESTERDAY morning I contacted Bolton Council over recycling bin not being empted and was told that there was some black food trays in the bin.

I informed them that the trays had the recycling cymbal on them and the word recyclable.

They told me that even though it has that on them that Bolton council will not recycle them.

So now with smaller black bins we have to fill them with recyclable materials as well as general waste.

So more useable material to the land fill.

And despite what the government and other agencies are saying about plastics Bolton Council won't alter its policies.
