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email - although they were apparently unwilling to write to the local papers themselves - that this facility had been withdrawn.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.
