Just wondered if you all knew that you can recycle plastic bottles at the tip at Eastwood, Todmorden.
It's only bottles - they are a different kind of plastic from the hard plastic, apparently - but it's a start. Calderdale don't seem to have advertised the fact very widely.
I pop down there quite frequently because there are quite a few things they recycle that Kerbside don't collect - cardboard, clothes, shoes, electrical goods, gardening waste, and now plastic bottles - so it's worth saving them up for next time I travel to Tod.

It is a start, Anne - the skip has been there for some time.
It is a shame though that there is no provision for the recycling of other hard plastics.
I used to save such stuff and take it with me on regular trips to East Yorkshire until I was told that it just ended up in landfill as it couldn't be processed.
Does anyone know the nearest place which will accept "non-bottle" hard plastics for recycling?
