Will this not be possible at Rose Hill even after the proposed redevelopment? See topic :Development at Rose Hill Tip

I don't know why it isn't being introduced at Rose Hill but you can now recycle tetrapak cartons at the Portwood Tesco superstore.

I notice in the local paper that Tetra Pak recycling is being introduced although not - if I read it right - at the Rose Hill depot.  This is a shame.  Anyone know why this has happened.  Rose Hill is surely one of the prime recyling centres in Stockport.

Some of my family live on the Marple Hall estate, and they were involved in the trial for plastic.

Its a good idea, as we go through many plastic milk bottles a week.

I wrote to the council about this yesterday and got a reply saying that the council had decided at a meeting in the last two weeks to introduce doorstep plastic and carboard recycling, probably in 2009 along with wheelie bins.

i've lived in marple all my life and dont remember a trial for plastic collection.
also if they carn't do anything with it whats the point of taking it to the reclying bins in the main carpark or down at the tip. what happens to it when it leaves there does it just go to a landfill site.

I see you can compost the content of your Hoover bag, what about Dyson and Electrolux, also long gone Goblin?

I had a 'meeting' via work with the lady who has been instrumental in tha changes. she said that there is no chance we will be getting wheelie bins for the next 5 years because they are changing the way they collect our rubbish (blue bags) they are clear so they can see how much we do or dont recycle, and flag up any repeat offenders, they also have no plans to collect plastic, although they trialed it in marple and it was very sucessful it was too expensive to carry on with. it is something to do with the average yoghurt pot containing 40 types of plastic and their recycling facility can only process 20.

this meeting lasted 90 mins and covered loads of stuff but that was the jist of it.

also if you get someone elses black box or green bin ring the number they give you and they will clean/return it.

also the salvation army collect plastic and take it to the tip for you, you can compost card and your hoover bag and contents!

I dont think I have a problem with it either but I think Im just suspicious of the council !!

that maybe in the future when we are used to the new system they may well say if you put out black bags then you get charged

My family has 6 members.. I do recycle probably not as much as i could but i try but i still produce 2 or 3 bags a week.  

The quality of the bags is dreadful  but they are quite large i think.. the transparency is a bit off putting..

claims that they will be checking our rubbish to see if businesses are throwing stuff away (instead of paying the correct amount to dispose of it)etc make me a little concerned especially when i run out of blue bags - in theory that will be in May!!

and the blue bag rolls dont fit in my drawer :>(

but apart from that i think we need something different than the old way not just to help the bin men but also to encourage more recycling.  

and then we could discuss at length the fact that our greener stockport doesnt recycle half as much as most of the rest of the country even though our council tax is significantly higher than many

i asked and was told that should you run out of the blue bags you can use black bags as long as they are the same quality as the blue. after looking at the blue ones i think not a problem mine that i buy are better. '<img'>

I honestly cannot see why anyone would have a problem with the new blue bag system.

At present, you only get one bag a week, I have asked for extra to be told they are not allowed to give them.

Often, on bin collection day, our bin bag has blown away from where it is usually left by the time i get home from work, this way, on a roll, I have all the bin bags I should normaly have from them a year.

As for having problems collecting waste, there is a phone number for the recycling department, if you give them a ring, im sure they could help
