Blue bin blues

WE all seem to have had new labels stuck to our blue recycling bin in the last few days.

Last week I put out my blue bin with items which were all recyclable but not necessarily on the little label. I came home to find that the bin had not been emptied.

So this week I transferred all the items into the green bin and guess what, all emptied and presumably on the way to landfill. It goes to show that we haven’t got a clue in this country when it comes to recycling.

Can I just add that this was a one-off sort of experiment for me. I am an avid supporter of recycling and do take items to the appropriate recycling centre, as I would urge everyone to do.
