Recycling is rubbish
Once again I am complaining about the emptying of the recycling boxes. Today December 31 the recycling box was collected and then a fair amount of it was emptied onto my front garden, leaving tin cans and paper on the front lawn. I know it was the bin men
Once again I am complaining about the emptying of the recycling boxes. Today December 31 the recycling box was collected and then a fair amount of it was emptied onto my front garden, leaving tin cans and paper on the front lawn. I know it was the bin men as I was listening out for them to collect my box as soon as it was emptied and saw them doing it. This raises two important points:
1) It seems that 95% of the local litter is actually caused by the bin men.
2) With identity theft on the rise having paper just strewn about the neighbourhood is a total security nightmare and so your bin men must be making a contribution to this crime no matter how small.
It is a good job I follow the Government and my bank's advice and shred all my sensitive paperwork before recycling but a lot of people still do not.
You may also want to watch:
This is not the first time I have complained about the bin men and to be honest I am getting sick of it, with council tax being so high I expect to actually get the service I pay for without any hassle or grief, but obviously that cannot be done.
The government has announced that anti-social behaviour such as littering will be targeted and if that happens I will quite happily report the bin men and see if the threat of legal proceedings will make them change their behaviour.
