Wet weather.
We would greatly appreciate it if, when leaving your empty veg boxes out for collection, you could ensure that they are kept out of the rain. Leave them undercover or flatten them and slip them into a bin bag if the weather looks dubious. We aim to use boxes five or six times before they are recycled but one good shower of rain makes them pretty much unusable. Having said that, do recycle them yourselves if you feel they have reached the end of their time!
