Breaking News ! Supermarket shoppers have hit out at Tesco after it announced a new rule in a bid to cut down on plastic waste. The retail giant has confirmed that it will be banning tray liners and non-essential plastic bags from all online orders, BirminghamLive reports. The measure is due to come into force on April 19 and will affect both delivery and click-and-collect orders. A spokesperson for Tesco said on social media: "Take on the challenge this Easter and share your success using #NoTimeForWasteChallenge. "We've teamed up with the environmental charity Hubbub to challenge you to reduce your food waste at home. Check out our tips, take on the challenge and share your success using #NoTimeForWasteChallenge." But one customer hit back: "Do you realise how much harder you're making it for the elderly and disabled to have a food delivery? And the trays are usually dirty. The liners were bad enough." A second added: "Tesco, instead of #everylittlehelps Please #givealittlehelp by restoring bags or tray liners to Customers struggling with physical and mental health disabilities. Don't make an essential food shop something people dread. Life can be hard enough." Stuart wrote: "We have our weekly shop delivered by Tesco every Thursday and it comes packed in Tray Liners which can then be placed in the recycle bin. As Pensioners who rely on Tesco for our full weekly shop we are really worried following an email received today advising us Tray liners are being withdrawn in April 2021." Martin wrote: "I do a large online shop from Tesco each week and spend around £100.00 per week on average - sometimes less and sometimes more. I am now thinking of ditching Tesco as the thought of all my shopping sitting loose in the plastic trays fills me with dread." Another wrote: "Perhaps Tesco could rethink their latest edict on banning tray liners for home deliveries.

." "I agree that while reducing plastic waste is a good thing in theory the removal of trayliners/bags when delivering to people is a terrible idea and I am actually really upset at how much more awkward the whole experience is going to be now," wrote Emma. "I’m fuming also about the liners being stopped. As a household of 6 this will be a nightmare!!! " agreed another. "I am totally bewildered by the supposed logic in this decision. I suffer with RA so when my delivery comes it is going to take me a very long time to empty the trays," said Diane. Denise wrote: "I am reading that you doing away with tray liners ..so you expect disabled people to bend and pick up every item... and no you cannot come in our house... this is discrimination against disabled people and older people... crazy" Top stories from the CheshireLive newsletter Here are the latest stories from the CheshireLive newsletter Cheshire lake saved from destruction by community M6 and A556 to close as work on new junction 19 bridge continues Four-year-old Cheshire stroke survivor completes marathon Covid survivors could be left with permanent lung damage, fears health campaigner Want to sign up to receive these stories straight to your inbox?
