I CAN see Mrs McNally is afraid of recycling bins.

But I can say to her, from deepest darkest Herefordshire, “Be not afraid”. The system is fantastic, far better than anything I have seen elsewhere.

We have had these bins for several years, and I can honestly say that I have never broken a single bottle in the bin, there is always paper or plastic to give it a soft landing, and it is possible to aim where it lands.

There is virtually no time taken up in sorting, just no black plastic, plastic bags or clingfilm. You can put in yoghurt pots, drinks cartons, tins, everything.
