PLASTIC RECYCLING FINALLY COMING TO RAINHILLA colleague has found a novel way to promote the party, he puts Labour stickers on everything.
But to the business, we have been given the green light to pilot a scheme for plastic recycling to evaluate its' uptake. The pilot has, in our view, been watered down by only involving about a quarter of the Rainhill properties and also by involving other areas of the borough. The residents of Rainhill clearly demonstrated that they are the KINGS OF RECYCLING in St Helens and wanted, nee demanded, the ability to do more.
The areas to be covered in Rainhill involve about 1400 houses in the north of the ward, off Rainhill Road, and the properties surrounded by Warrington Road, Holt Lane and Longton Lane. Questions about why other properties in Rainhill have not been involved remain unanswered.
"If it's a plastic bottle, then it can be recycled" is the simple message. The containers have been ordered, the leaflets for households have been printed, and the pilot scheme should be started very soon. To involved residents, please let us know your experiences so we can feed-back any positive or negative aspects.
