Bubble wrap and plastic recycling goes well
Friday 4th January 2013, 1:00PM GMT.
A TRIAL scheme that enables people to recycle clean and clear bubble wrap and polythene has got off to a good start.
Public Services recycling officer Tina Norman-Ross, pictured, said the Longue Hougue facility was proving to be very popular.
‘With all of the Christmas presents coming into the island there is a plethora of packaging,’ she said.
‘Often this combines cardboard, polystyrene and polythene, which includes bubble wrap.
‘We have had recycling facilities in place for cardboard and polystyrene for years now, and islanders are well used to using those. However, until now all the polythene and bubble wrap material have had to go in the bin.’
