Further to my thread months ago I am still feeling cross at the ineptitude of our recycling system. Maybe your town is better but here we have a big plastic box for card and paper, pink sacks for tins, glass, foil and plastic.
Well the plastic boxes blow around in high winds and mine disappeared fairly quickly. I used a couple of my own but they took the whole box and I cannot afford a new one every week!
(Surely it makes more sense for the box to contain glass and the pink sacks for card and paper).
Then, I watched the dustmen pick up the pink sack and household rubbish and bung them both in same rubbish lorry and squash....so much for my careful washing and separating.
Even the next door council does it differently. Why on earth can't we have a better system that is nationwide with everyone singing from the same hymn sheet.
