Dear Sir, WHILE sympathising with M. Irving about excessive packaging, there is another side to this, which we can all do something about. The foil wrapping from his butter should go in the yellow recycling bin for containers along with plastic bottles, tins, bricks (drink cartons), yoghurt containers and tins. The cardboard sleeve goes with the paper and cardboard into the blue containers and any bottles into the bottle bank. All of these recyclable items are accepted at San Reus at no charge to the local council. The only charge is for the unsorted household waste for incineration. You can also reuse your plastic bags next time you shop.
