Midlands Councillor Wants Local Authorities To Channel Spirt of 'Body And Soul'

The annual festival only supplies compostable food packaging.

There is nowhere to recycle compostable packaging at outdoor and take-away locations in Athlone. 

Councillor Louise Heavin says it's time to bring the spirit of festivals like Body and Soul, where all food packaging is compostable and can be disposed of in special bins. 

While some individuals collect their compostable waste, there's no contractor appointed by the council to deal with it. 

The Green Party rep says it needs to change.
