Guidance on the use of plastics

We're waiting for Laura-Lynn Hardy to read a recent response and update the status.

Laura-Lynn Hardy

Dear Dumfries and Galloway Council,

Please provide a copy of the guidance issued to council staff in the use of plastics, including but not limited to the placing of laminated public notices attached to lampposts, the use of cable ties for that and other purposes, and the guidance on the removal of all such materials and avoidance of their loss and consequent environmental damage. When providing this information please confirm the date of issue and how the dissemination to staff who maybe performing such tasks is confirmed.

Further, please provide a copy of the checking process employed to monitor that all such plastic materials have been retrieved and accounted for once their use is finalised.

Yours faithfully,

Laura-Lynn Hardy

Dumfries and Galloway Council
