Recycle Plastic Bags

Reintroduce recycling of plastic bags to the Rotorua district

Why is this important?

Plastic bags do not break down, they fill up our landfill and end up in our water ways contributing to a global issue of pollution that is killing our marine life. Up until late last year we had plastic bag recycling in the Rotorua district and the removal of this service is a huge step backwards for our community and the clean green image that New Zealand presents to the world. Other district councils support the recycling of plastic bags and our council needs to resolve this serious problem.
