Despite the heat, plastic collections have continued all summer long – well done team! So far only one day has been rained off when a wonderful 4″ fell from the skies. We have been working “in the red” financially, but are now recouping from the major street lighting repairs project. We are starting to put funds back into providing more baskets, and of course, the ongoing purchase of the black sacks for the collections. Yes, we pick up some rubbish in our special baskets, but we are seeing an improvement that they are being used primarily for plastic. Unfortunately it is not all the correct plastic and we only get paid for that. As of the end of August the total amount of correct plastic we have collected – drum roll – is 27,424 kilos NETT.
