Points

it can reduce home expenditure and we must reduce resource waste, especially during new build construction. I recently re-clad our wee shed with the kitchen flooring the council were going to send to landfill. Luckily the flooring had been green and we had some paint left. It looks as though it's been there a while and blends in, water-tight now too. Next door had a new bath and she uses old one as a fish pond. Councils don't build in these landfill savings - it's too easy to take away bins

simple easy idea, fully support

Sensible idea. However, chances of getting this past planning are nil. [Or Cockburn Association].

give plastic value so people do not throw it away

Reduce, remove and tax the use of plastic in the first place. It is a toxic substance and re-use should be carefully considered
