COUNCILLOR Lynda Needham is wrong in thinking that changing to alternate weekly collections will "change people's habits of a lifetime".

Either people are like ourselves and already recycle as much as possible - and judging by the overflowing bottle and can banks we are not alone.

Others do not have the inclination or ability to recycle anything.

One of the largest volumes we recycle is plastics and until a kerbside collection is put in place most of this will still go in the general rubbish.

Cllr Rod Kennedy recommends that we return packaging to Tesco.

While people demand the likes of ready meals and frozen food there will inevitably be the need for packaging.
