Dear Cheshire East Council,

I would like to ask the following questions regarding plastic waste exports:

“Can you provide a list of the companies that handle any of the Council’s plastic waste?”

“What percentage of plastic waste, and what tonnage, is being exported?”

“Where is the Council’s plastic waste exported, and where are those exports re-exported?”

“Does the Council have a strategy to recycle plastic waste in the UK instead of exporting?”

Yours faithfully,

Jonathan Price
