I have heard some Councils are telling their residents not to recycle plastic anymore, is this true?

There has been a lot of news and information about plastics recently and their presence in our oceans. In particular news about plastic recycling going overseas and ending up unaccounted for, rumours of it ending up in our oceans. We are aware a few councils in the country have immediately told their residents to stop recycling plastic and put all plastics in their waste bin. Rother feel that this reaction at this stage is knee jerk and like the majority of Councils Rother understands that their are other alternative locations if required for our plastics to be sent in the UK or overseas where these plastics will continue to be recycled. Lastly Rother are waiting to see what measure are going to be implemented by the Government to tackle plastics, excessive packaging and reduce waste.
