I was alarmed by a comment received on my last post “Labour shoots itself in the foot again. An ex Councillor was concerned that someone in her road was depositing used dirty nappies in the green recycling bin and if this practice occurs they have to send the whole load to land fill. I’m quite frankly appalled. The literature that came out at the time the scheme was introduced was very clear about what we could and could not dispose of via recycling so if this practise is happening it must be stopped. I’m not sure of the facts here but I will attempt to find out if it is true that whole load goes to land fill. For this to be general knowledge someone must have been made aware of what was going on. I wonder if this is a case for the enforcement officer? Not a pleasant duty to have to track down the culprit but the sooner they are named and shamed the better. They are either incredibly thick or downright malicious. I wonder of there are other cases of how the scheme is being misused?
