Privacy fears over Cardiff Council's clear refuse bag proposal

Cardiff Council is considering swapping black refuse bags for clear ones, in order to spot missed opportunities for recycling.

It's just one idea being considered as part of a green paper on recycling initiatives that'll be published in the summer.

The council says it must look at all opportunities to maximise recycling.

"It's a very very good way of finding out a lot of information about somebody" says Emma Carr, from Big Brother Watch.

"I think allowing people to see very very clearly who you are as a person when you may feel uncomfortable with that is certainly a step too far".
