Improve recycling in Southampton

This petition had 240 supporters

Southampton City Council recently changed from weekly to fortnightly bin collections. While it is a good thing that everyone should take responsibility for managing and reducing the rubbish they generate, the problem is that SCC offer very limited recycling options.

The most problematic aspect of this, especially as the weather gets warmer, is the lack of food waste recycling. Other Councils, including Eastleigh, offer this so why not Southampton?

The other improvement that would have the most impact would be to recycle plastic that is not bottle-shaped. 

So, SCC, please review your recycling provision and mitigate the effect of reducing the frequency of bin collections as well as encouraging people to recycle more by offering food waste recycling as well as improved plastic recycling.
