the hated toad

Let's talk about wheelie bins.

In my city these bins have an electronic tag. The purpose of this is, eventually, to monitor the amount of refuge produced by each household so that the council can bill them if they throw ro much away. Part of the reason is to encourage higher levels of recycling but I'm sure it is more about revenue collection.
As always there are a number of people who see me as the devil's agent when I deliver the bins.
Ah well my skin is thick (and warty)and most people are pleasant.

it's a cash grab...recycling is the biggest scam going most companies are swamped with recycled stuuf that they can't use..60% of recycled stuuf goes into landfill...

You are both so right.

I did a spell on street cleaning a couple of weeks ago.
We have split bins on the streets half for plastic, glass etc for recycling and the other half for general waste.

It all goes into the same crusher for landfill
