How can we cut down on our rubbish?
The government wants to cut down on the amount of rubbish we produce in England. How can this be achieved?
Environment Secretary Caroline Spelman has launched a review of how to achieve a "zero waste" economy. The review will look at cutting product packaging and rewarding people for throwing less away.
Other proposals include processing recyclable rubbish rather than sending it abroad.
Councils will also be asked to come up with ways to improve the frequency and "quality" of bin collections and will look at the problems caused by multiple wheelie bins.
Do you agree with government proposals to cut waste? How can the government encourage households to recycle more? Do you think there should be fewer wheelie bins? What facilities would enable you to recycle and reuse more?
