    Shropshire Council's method of collecting plastic waste and the way it leaves plastic scattered all over the countryside has raised the ire of residents in the west of the county.

    Heather said:

    " Following on from the recent outcry in the media over plastic in the oceans following Blue Planet 2, a number of colleagues and I have received a growing number of complaints about the way that Shropshire Council collects plastic waste for recycling. Other councils provide some form of cover for the plastic box (either a lid or a net as in Powys) to prevent plastic items blowing away but not Shropshire. If you have and sort of breeze on collection day it results is plastic being blown all over the place.

    Just a brief note this month to wish everyone a happy Christmas and a prosperous new year.

    Our communities face some tough challenges over the next year as cutback continue to impact on services, schools and roads. If planning does not improve we will steadily have less and less housing available for our young families and less housing for people to down size into.
