Our local authority has started to charge for the clear sacks that we have to use to put our plastic and card recycling in to and being the thrifty mum I am, I have come up with another solution.
At least twice a week one of those charity plastic bags is put through my letterbox. I do give to charity but tend to give to the church shop in the village I live in so do not use these bags.
Well I have started to save them and use them for all our recycling. After speaking to the refuge collection guys last week to confirm that they would take it and they agreed that they would. The only bags they do not take for recycling are black sacks with things in.
