Stop Wellington City Council from getting rid of the Green recycling bins

Petition details

Wellington City Council wants to replace recycling bins with plastic bags that you have to pay for. This will seriously reduce the amount of recycling done in the capital as it will be easier and cheaper to throw rather than recycle rubbish. We will move further away from being a cleaner greener capital if we change to paying to recycle.
