Supermarkets and plastics - NOT amateur radio

Have you noticed how much packaging, especially plastic, is used in supermarkets these days? When I was a child we had none, really.

Why is it so hard for supermarkets to make clear which plastics can be recycled? Why are not all plastics used in supermarkets recycled? They all have a lot of power over their suppliers and should insist on this.

Basically, I hate plastic packages for so much, especially when it cannot be recycled.

Totally agree with you Roger, you cannot recycle ready meal plastic packaging and food contaminated plastic.
We have wheelie bins for plastic glass and tins with a smaller container in side each main wheelie bin for paper, but these are too small for
card and paper, but these are too small for the amount of waste card and paper.
You have to pay £35 a year for a green waste, if you pay early you get a discount.
Some people are flytipping rather than having a green bin or taking to the local tip, resulting in the waste being piling up ingardens resulting in a vermin problem.
