COMING SOON TO A COUNCIL NEAR YOU- THE NINE (9) BIN RECYCLING SYSTEM!
Families are being forced to separate their rubbish into nine different bins in order to meet tough recycling targets.
Households have been told to separate cardboard from paper, and plastic bottles from glass, tins and aerosols. The new bin system by Newcastle-under-Lyme Council, includes a silver slop bucket for food waste, which is then emptied into a larger, green outdoor bin. There is a pink bag for plastic bottles, a blue box for glass, foil, tins and aerosols, a green bag for cardboard and blue bags for paper and magazines. Clothing and textiles go in a white bag, garden waste in a wheelie bin with a brown lid and non-recyclable waste in a separate grey wheelie bin.
If successful, the scheme is likely to be adopted by councils up and down the country.
Note to any councillors in SOUTH AYRSHIRE COUNCIL who may be reading this. Don't bother YOUR ARSE EVEN THINKING ABOUT IT!
