Traci Heir, pictured here with two-year-old daughter Karen, is a keen advocate of recycling.

She said:

 We try not to waste much. Both my children were in real nappies and not disposable ones which reduced our rubbish considerably. However, we were probably filling our wheelie bin every two weeks. Now, with the trials, it’s not at all full after three weeks!

For us, being able to recycle plastics has made a big difference.
