Plastic waste
Looks like Amsterdam is heading for a run in with the environment minister over its refusal to think about starting separate collections of plastic waste from January next year. Environment minister Jacqueline Cramer says it has to happen but the city's Carolien Gehrels says it is more environment friendly to keep burning plastic waste to make electricity. The council has apparently commissioned a report into the 'environmental balance' between burning and separate collection. Few surprises expected there then.
