  4. What to do. . .

    Please don't put carrier bags or any sort of plastic bags in your recycling bins. Some supermarkets have a recycling scheme for these, but it's better to try not to use them - try using a Bag for Life, a rucksack, holdall or bicycle pannier for your shopping instead. Or keep a few boxes in the boot of your car for when you go to the supermarket.
