Copy of Letter To Editor

Alan from Rangiora

"Having completed a recent holiday of the Upper South Island, I made a couple interesting observations - has anybody noticed there seems to be no Rubbish Bins in the rest areas between Nelson and Murchison. Where are we meant to put our rubbish - on the side of the road, maybe?

Also a couple of Motels that we stayed in, had Signs Up saying that they recycle, and encouraging visitors to separate their recyclable waste from general waste.

Imagine my surprise, when I saw one of the motels owners/franchise holders put the container holding Recycled Plastic, into the container holding Landfill Waste, when he thought no one was looking.

Also, sadly, I observed the same thing happen in one of the Christchurch Malls. My question is, that a lot of advertising goes into telling us to recycle when in reality, .....

I wonder how widespread this practise is, that "gives" the illusion of doing the right thing.
