Has anyone received their orange recycling sacks lately?
I've not received any for a while and me Mrs and Little Miss D1 tend to generate quite a bit of recycling waste.
Well over the weekend I looked at my dwindling supply and thought better go to the library and get some more.
To absolute surprise neither the central library or the town hall had any!
How do those numbnutz in Streetcare expect us recycle waste if there's no sacks to put the stuff in?
Or do they have more than they can recycle so is it a deliberate ploy.
I doubt we will be told.
They've always been in short supply but I used to get extra packs from the library. It has become more difficult to get any extra as the libraries only open when they feel like it, sometimes the basket they put them in is empty, and on occasion I have been told they are waiting for more stock.
I too like to feel I'm recycling wherever possible, but as I get older I become less tolerant of the excuses and if the council couldn't care less, I adopt the same attitude and chuck everything in the black sacks.
I agree that it appears that the council is getting more recyclable material than they actually want and I don't think they are getting such a good price for plastic waste any more. Either that, or they will blame the funding deficit.
We are supposed to have our bags collected Friday but for the last four weeks they have been collected Monday so the bags stay out Thurday night Friday Saturday Sunday and the foxes spread them over the street.
Hedgehogs will forage and feed where they can, commendable as it maybe to feed them. Thinking they won't go to refuse bags because you feed them is as daft as putting up a sign saying hedgehogs please do not nibble into the orange and black bags by the gate.
Also, crows are very able when it comes to pecking at rubbish bags. I've watched them flying onto the roof with waste tit bits, throwing bread to them would be little if no deterrent at all.
Refugees do not have the right to demand but should accept the blessings bestowed upon them gracefully by nations extending the hand of friendship.
I'm sure the hedgehogs and crows are more likely to take notice of a sign saying do not nibble on black and orange sacks than Havering cowboy parking attendants are when slapping a ticket on some poor sods car when parked in his own front garden. If anyones interested I've been advised orange sacks are now available at the town hall and the central library. As the old saying goes hurry while stocks last!
