eco enthusiast lets binmen off lightly - plastic film packaging
An avid recycler will give his bin man only a bag of garbage throughout 2012, after making a new year's decision last year.
Every week, John Newson above screens his household waste, compost as much as possible, and collects separation cans, paper, cardboard, plastic and glass for his roadside recycling.
His single bag was filled with plastic.
Film packaging, compressed into plastic bottles.
Mr. Newson, 60, of Balsall Heath, Birmingham, said: "My purpose is to find out how much our garbage can be sorted, recycled or reused, and my conclusion is that I think it's about 90
But it's possible, not convenient.
He intends to do the same this year.
