...the magazine finally being delivered in paper rather than in a polythene bag
Not so good when it is raining.
The mag itself seems to be fairly water resistant
I'd rather the odd soggy mag than thousands of unrecyclable polythene bags being sent out each week.
Surely the water is all *in* the mag this week?
My latest copy arrived on Monday and the paper packaging was damp. The adhesive along the seam on the back was sticky and the packaging was stuck to the back cover of the magazine, but fortunately there is never anything of interest on the back cover.
Possibly the wrong kind of adhesive?
I agree. The non-sticky stuff is far better.
Or perhaps merely not soluble in water?
There is only one reason plastic bags are not recycled: We choose not to.
The same with my copy.Glue on back of mag but no harm done.
Swansea City Council,in their infinite wisdom,have decided plastic bags cannot be recycled.
You local council will tell you that the ability to recycle some types of plastic depends on the availability of somebody to process it. So my local council will take plastic 'bottles' (milk, water, etc.), but not yoghurt pots or plastic bags. They will accept AP paper subscription packaging, even if wet.
So the use of 'we' implies the need for a national policy, and the funds to implement it: one for Boris and his loyal team.
I recycle everything that's recyclable. Where I live, the polythene bags aren't accepted anywhere for recycling, so paper envelopes all the way for me, even if they occasionally get wet.
