Plastic puzzle

Can you make head or tail of this silly Hartlepool Borough Council?

On April 8 I put my grey bin out for collection.

The bin men left it unemptied because I had a plastic carrier bag in it.

They said I contaminated it.

What is the point of them recycling plastics if they don’t take plastic bags?

I asked the council what I can do about my rubbish now the bin is full.

She said to put it in the green bin.

So all of that plastic would be going to landfill.

I’m writing this letter to let all households know not to put plastic bags in with their plastic waste.

L Graham,

Bluebell Way,

Hartlepool.
