My regularly used Tupperware stuff is nearly 40 years ago so has probably paid back its dues to the planet, in manufacturing terms! I also reuse takeaway containers (only order twice a year for family birthdays) and the council area I work in, as opposed to where I live, takes other harder plastic waste.
I recycle ALL my plastic wrappings/bags (unless I reuse them as poo bags when I occasionally look after my daughter's dog) at the collection point at *Tesco or Sainsburys' entrances* and take plastic milk bottles tops to my local Mencap shop. I compost everything suitable for my own garden use - you can pay extra for the council to collect -and very rarely are leftovers wasted; I just 'bubble and squeak' everything.
My local council still provides black plastic sacks for weekly collection (this is mostly used to generate electricity rather than going to landfill) and my bag usually has hardly anything in it, but I do put it out weekly because it smells of left over cat food scrapings (unless the dog's here then she eats it)- I can't persuade the cat to not leave bits of food in her dish, sadly! Glass is collected every 4 weeks.
All waste should be recycled including human waste from the toilet, the world produces enough of that!
