Merseyside offers recycling incentive
26 July 2010, source lawr
Merseyside's bag giveaway scheme has proved popular in the past
The scheme will operate throughout August at Kirkby and Otterspool and will move to Formby and Southport in September. It has already run successfully at Newton-le-Willows and West Kirby during July, where around 500 bags have been given away.
Carl Beer, director of MWDA, said: "We ran a giveaway scheme a few years ago and it was very popular - in fact we shifted around 20,000 bags. And our regular compost giveaways are always enthusiastically received by the public, so we know there is an appetite for recycling habits to be rewarded."
