SIR, - Further to earlier correspondence about the recycling of hard plastics such as yoghurt pots, I wrote to Herts County Council.
They informed me, in an informative and apparently well-informed email - although they were apparently unwilling to write to the local papers themselves - that this facility had been withdrawn.
I recently went to the Waterdale site and noticed that the facility appeared to still be there, so I asked whether they would be binning whatever people left there.
I was told by a member of staff, who was no school-leaver, that they could not recycle plastic food packaging, even if it had been washed, but other hard plastics could still be taken and recycled.

Clearly they sort what is left and bin anything food-related. Strange that HCC did not tell me this. Do the left and right hands not talk to each other? In a changing world, some things never change!
