Campaign To Cut Down Carrier Bags

Somerset County Gazette

A campaign being led by the Somerset County Council and Somerset Waste Partnership will encourage retailers and check-out staff not to automatically give out carrier bags but to ask shoppers whether they actually need a bag. Wellington shoppers are being urged to play their part by using reusable shopping bags and packing the maximum amount that they can into carrier bags they take. They are also being reminded to reuse old bags such as using them as waste bin liners or for separating materials within their recycling boxes.
