Leaving a footprint

litter

With all the talk about carbon footprints, perhaps we should rethink that slogan about “taking only photographs, leaving only footprints”.

This coming week we have council elections, and according to the papers a hot issue in some local authorities is waste collection.  According to experts, moving from a weekly to a fortnightly waste collection scheme is good for the environment, as it encourages people to recycle more of their waste. Typically councils will have an alternate weeks approach: collecting normal waste one week, and recyclables the next.  The article I link to above claims that the LibDems lost control of Bolton in the 2006 council elections on this issue.
