No more plastic collections

PLASTIC collections in Winscombe, run by The Zero Waste Group, have had to be stopped.

PLASTIC collections in Winscombe, run by The Zero Waste Group, have had to be stopped.

The monthly collections, held at Sandford Road car park, had in the past filled two industrial sized skips of residents' plastic waste.

Due to this being such a small amount compared to other industrial operations, the transport firm used by the group no longer has the resources to deal with these collections economically.

The Zero Waste Group is now seeking alternative ways of handling plastic waste.
