Outside the Tesco Metro is a new re-cycling bin,

A handsome, chunky slate-grey one, enhanced with lime green trim.

It stands left of the ATM; is convenient to use,

And welcomes all that plastic film which other sites refuse.

From every type of plastic bag; cling film and pet food sachet,

To crisp packets and sweet wrappers, it's a plastics-trash gourmet.

All these will then be processed; turned into useful oil,

Or even then recycled back to more plastic turmoil!

'Reduce, Re-use, Re-cycle' must still our mantra be,

But the new bin in the car park will help to keep streets plastic-free.
