Tackling Plastic Waste - increasing recycling, reducing one trip containers

How are we tackling plastic waste locally? How can we reduce the use of one trip containers? How can we increase recycling rates? What can be made from waste plastic feedstocks?

John Queening (Holmfirth Transition Town) will give an overview of how we are tackling the waste challenges in England. Rachel Palmer (Recycling Officer, Kirklees Council) will provide an insight into the council's work on promoting recycling and future plans. We will move to a debate with examples of local initiatives you can support.
