I HAVE recently received clarification of the Trafford Council recycling facilities (along with an increased council tax bill of 4.6 per cent) and am dismayed at how limited those facilities are.

Given that the problem of plastic waste is now apparently adversely affecting a huge chunk of our precious planet, the fact that a large Western council like Trafford is only prepared to accept an extremely small amount of plastic for recycling ie plastic bottles (no lids) is of huge concern.
