Different local authorities have different ideas on what should or should not be recycled and into what receptacle items for recycling should be placed. There is an Environment Minister, Ben Bradshaw, appointed to deal with such issues and I think it would be a good idea for his department to establish conformity on recycling i.e. what exactly everybody should be putting in their receptacles. Wouldn't it also be a good idea to establish a nationwide standard i.e. shape, size and colour for all the receptacles used for recycling especially looking at it from a cost effective viewpoint and also being more eco-friendly from a manufacture and procurement point of view.
