That WCC adopt prepaid rubbish bag stickers to compliment the existing official rubbish bags.

Petition details

A rubbish bag sticker would support WCC's and the Government's 'Reduce, reuse and recycle' initiatives, and reduce plastic entering the Southern Landfill. Official Council rubbish bags are often not filled due to reductions in rubbish and increased recycling. Those using smaller plastic bin liners must use an official rubbish bag, increasing plastic bag use.
