Luke recently held a debate in Parliament to raise our bid to be a part of the soft plastic recycling trial with the Minister at the Department for Food, Environment and Rural Affairs, Jo Churchill MP
Luke stressed the importance of this scheme to our area, including:
- Our current recycling rate success, which is one of the best in the West of England
- Our unique communities and high demand for soft plastic recycling, including fruit and vegetable packaging, plastic bags, and clingfilm
- Continuing the momentum of Our Positive Plan for the Environment
