Recycling the Plastic Bag Explosion Caused by the Pandemic

Published: 23rd June 2021 20:07

We have received correspondence from a resident who would like your help regarding recycling of plastic bags accumulated over the various lockdowns. 

They write: 

help"Can anyone tell me where to deposit all the plastic bags I have collected over the past 18 months from deliveries as they insist on providing them and it is no longer possible to return them to Sainsburys or anywhere else I can find?

"It seems that the pandemic has exploded our use of plastic, cardboard and paper and despite my best efforts I am not able to recycle the plastic.

"Ocado is now taking bags back but others are not and everything comes wrapped in masses of bubble wrap which they won't take back.

"If anyone knows where I can take it I would be very grateful as it is piling up! Thanks, Sam."

Please leave your comments on the article and/or email us if you can help Sam.

Charity shops might like to have the bubble wrap, expecially the animal charity one in Parkgate road, who will also take carrier bags. Ask around the other charity shops and see if they can use your bags.
(I've got lots of them too - and there's only so many bins you need to line!)

Hi Sam, my mum and I had the same problem since Sainsburys removed their recycle bin. I spoke to them about it and they say people were putting rubbish in it, including soiled nappies and cooked chicken bones so nobody was willing to empty it. A sign with Plastic Recycling on it may have helped those who accidentally mistook it for a bin. I found that Tesco takes plastic bag recycling. My mum is in Prestatyn so I phoned the store and they confirmed they were accepting again so we took a large amount of bags including fruit and veg bags, toilet roll/kitchen roll packaging etc. I would suggest phoning the Heswall one as only the large stores take it. Bubble wrap can be recycled but is often appreciated by charity shops. I work at the Oakwood Animal Sanctaury shop in Parkgate Road and we rely on donated bubblewrap. If you wanted to bring to us our phone number is 3366492 to check when open as although open every day, we are not back to full hours yet. Hope that helps, Jackie

I have recently taken plastic bags to the Tesco Store in Heswall.
