I've got a question about why do the recycling stations only accept plastic bottles for recycling and no other plastics.
Are the likes of yougart pots, tray insets in boxes, plastic egg cartons, etc not the same kind of plastic or something?

This provides interesting info: http://www.wasteonline.org.uk/resources/InformationSheets/Plastics.htm though it does not quite answer the question.

Yes I do the same - but why do we have to transport them to New Cross. Surely we can have somewhere a little closer that I could walk to rather than drive to.

I kinda presume that they are just nannying us by saying bottles only ... what I mean is that most plastic bottles are recyclable so you maybe dont need to check for the symbol whereas the same cant be said for other plastic waste?
Personally, I put all recyclable plastics in those bins as I cant see what the difference between a type 4 recyclable bottle and type 4 recyclable meat tray is (and I dont have a means of taking it all to New Cross).
