So, can the DCC bring back a soft plastic recycling program for the city?
Perhaps a new mayor can really make this a priority?
I consider myself an average mainstream Kiwi parent that is trying to help in order to create a better and more clean environment.
When I read that DCC stopped collecting plastics in supermarkets - countdown mainly (jan 2019)- I started to collect our soft plastics hoping that program was to return. Now about 7-8 month later our family of 4 collected this amount - see picture. We try to buy consciously and not consume too much.
So, I ask to see urgent action being put in place by DCC to bring back a recycling program and make a difference.
Otherwise, as we all know, the plastic will end up in the dump, not decompose for years and likely to end up in the sea.
