    Plastic food pots and trays are often unrecyclable, say councils

    Most of the plastic food containers that householders wash out after use and put in the recycling bin cannot actually be recycled, it has emerged.

    The Local Government Association says that only a third can be recycled. The rest get sent to landfill.

    The LGA wants plastics manufacturers to work with councils to prevent materials that limit recycling entering the system in the first place.

    One of the offices I visit each day in my job as a born-again sandwich salesman is that of Greenpeace, Canonbury Villas. They will not buy salads because these are packed in plastic containers – stuff those eco-fanatics will never be convinced is anything but damaging to the environment.
