IT is splendid that moves are being made towards banishing landfill-clogging plastic bags. However, my mind is taken back to the controversy that arose over the proposed change to fortnightly rubbish collections. At the time great concern was voiced over the possibility of having to leave rotting animal waste in bins for so long, particularly in warm weather, and the spectre of increased vermin population was foremost in the minds of those who protested. The advice given from on high. Put such waste into plastic bags. Brilliant!
