Nyon council have issued an appeal to all residents to check whether the bottles they throw in the P.E.T recycling bin really are P.E.T bottles.
A reminder that P.E.T bottles contain drinks, they are not shampoo bottles, milk bottles, detergent etc, these products can be taken back either to the supermarket/place where they were purchased (if they have a specialised collection point), or they can be thrown in the official rubbish/trash sack.
Over the last few years, the quality of recycling in the Nyon region has deteriorated resulting in extra costs for the council and more products have to be incinerated rather than recycled. A video (in French) explains the difference between the two different kinds of plastics and the importance of correct recycling. More information here on the council website.
