Recycling (2)

Black plastics - The council have never accepted these through the green box, but what appears to have been happening is that some of the crews have been taking it when it has mistakenly been put out, but it has been disposed of as contamination further down the line. 
 
The council have been working with the crews to stop them taking it in the first place, so some residents are thinking that we have changed our service - we haven't, we don't have a market for black plastics.  It can't be recycled. 
 
It constitutes a contaminant when it gets to the reprocesses and gets rejected there.
