  1. Thanks Terence for this video..
    Not only is there a lack of recyclable materials in the freshcase (NB. the plastic ends are NOT widely recycled in doorstep collections - please ignore the recycle triangles on plastic items, they are an industry mark rather than consumer mark [see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resin_identification_code%5D), but they are difficult to deal with.

    I'm really disappointed by the system, especially as magnums of wine are becoming increasingly available, and the glass bottles used are 99.x% recyclable, as opposed to a few percent (as previously raised here: http://shkspr.mobi/blog/index.php/2009/11/boxes-of-wine/).
    Second rant over...

    1. You're quite right. I've checked Woking council's page on recycling plastic and it's only bottles that they do. I wonder if those bulky plastic ends could be replaced by card? Obviously, it's unlikely that the nozzle and bag could be made out of recyclable material.

    Terence - why not just cut the caardboard away from the plastic? - or is that cheating?
