Did you know you can recycle plastic carrier bags at the larger supermarkets in Shrewsbury such as Co-op, Asda, Sainsburys, Tesco and Morrisons? Well you can. And the good news is they are now encouraging shoppers to use these in-store recycling bins for a wider range of plastic too - so you can also add any thin stretchy plastic (polythene) film including things like: -
The average household gets through 25 kg of plastic film every year. This may seem a small amount but it adds up to over 1,000 tonnes of the stuff across Shrewsbury! Help keep it out of landfill by taking it back to the supermarket next time you go shopping. This will make a big reduction in the amount of rubbish which ends up in your bin and help cut your carbon footprint.
