I mean rigid yogurt and soup pots.

How much landfill must they constitute?

As it is, ours expect us to take glass, waxed cartons and aluminium foil to recycling bins ourselves.

But am frankly amazed they haven't got this all sorted by now!

That does sound a bit, err, rubbish.

Our council will take all those and will take paper except if you put it through the shredder. What is it about shredding that makes paper non-recyclable?

I imagine it's not that they can't it's just they have no budget to put it in place

It's the same where I live too - I take all the plastic down to the recycling bank at the nearest supermarket, because they have the facilities there. It's so annoying because so much is in plastic packaging! They don't even collect takeaway pizza boxes here confused.
