I had the Clean Bin Project film in mind when I was doing this as Jen and Grant took any waste - food or packaging that they got when out and about, home with them. I don't know why I haven't done this before (probably because I don't eat out very often) - I will be in future though!
I decided to send the service station we stopped at an email politely asking them to consider installing recycling bins in their service stations. I will be interested to see if they get back to me and if so what they will say! Update - see their response here.
I am currently undertaking a Year of Eco Challenges . If you have a moment I would really appreciate it if you would consider sponsoring me with an action on my DoNation page. Also if you liked this post please click like on Facebook and follow on Twitter - thanks so much!
