Plastic Recycling



  • You probably heard about the petition on the Downing Street web site that got 1.6 million signatures.....well in a weird moment in the middle of the night I submitted an idea for a petition which got accepted.

    If you like it I wonder if you would FIRST forward it to at least 10 people then go & add your own signature to the link at the bottom

    We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Introduce a
    common grading standard for local authority recycling to enable
    manufacturers to use a common symbol to identify if and in what
    way something, specifically packaging, can be recycled

     At present each local authority has its own standards about 
     what can and can't be recycled so manufacturers can not give 
     definitive advice on disposing of their packaging. A common 
     system would enable specific items to be labeled as recyclable 
     depending on the actual recycling facilities available locally

  • I buy gallon water bottles and always try to recycle them. The problem is that these gallon bottles always take up so much space. I'd really like to compact these so I can take out more bottles per recycling bag. I find that it's hard for me to compress them by hand (ok, I'm not that strong). Does anybody know of a reasonably priced tool that does just that? Thanks.



  • I can only hope that this message saves somebody alot of grief and loss of money.His name is Garry Robinson and he does NOT pay for the plastic he purchases. He also does NOT pay his freight forwarders for hauling loads.The name of his company is Go-Polymers and he is based out of Washington State,USA. His advertisements are everywhere but do not be fooled, he is an outright thief.Contact me directly for proof if necessary.Please do NOT do any type of buisness with this company. You will NOT get paid.
