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!

No wonder people are going back to burning their rubbish in the back garden. It's getting ridiculous. I've started sealing up all my leftovers and posting them to Greece where at least they won't be wasted. Soon it will be our turn to eat scraps aswell.
The war in Afghanistan seems to have gone quiet. Are our troops being ordered to bunker down in case of casualties spoiling Gordons election ?
This is a good video of Gordon being welcomed by our veterans..

You know of course DL, that most of this is a scam? There are only 2 bins needed. One for household waste and one for garden waste which won't compost for about 10 years.

The councils are spending a fortune on this and the refuse lorry makers plus the wheelie bin manufacturers are making a complete fortune.

My habits will stay the same as they have done for years.

INCOMING!!!!!!! said...

DL this is just forced labour. When they sart making laws to make you do theri dirsty work then you know it won't be long before we start disappearing Argentina stylee.

Rosie, I love to shove a glass jar into the wrong bag, it's just the devil in me!

Dark Lochnagar said...

INCOMING!!!! Are you trying to tell me this is the thin end of the wedge. That is me finished with recyling. I am just going out to the garden for a shite. See you when I get back.

Toronto was one the fist to start recycling over here - it was hip - fab even. They were so busy recycling that they didn't notice that ALL the shite from their blue boxes were going straight into the landfill.

My wife separates into paper, cardboard, plastic, glass, and tin - they don't do compost here. I once put paper in a blue box and they refused to take it 'cause paper is supposed to go in a black box!!!

Dark Lochnagar said...

Scunnert, They're quite fucking right too. A man sits down and works out a system for rubbish and you put yours in the wrong bin. A good arse tanning is what you need! It's amazing,you are guaranteed to get more comments on recycling than anything else.

7 different boxes now and it's no bother because in Londistan it all works as the local council here is fuckin minted! Parking is free and the tube station is on the most exclusive private estate, Im suffocating!

Like Subrosa says, it's all bollox because EU recycling targets are measured at the point of collection so once it's in the various lorries no-one really gives a fuck where it ends up, landfill, China wherever.

Last week I was helping to clear out a house; I was giving up about whether I could be arsed about emptying out the marmite and jam jars and unpackaging the sausage rolls from the freezer; breaking down the picture frames and nick-nacks so as to put the glass, plastic and wood into the right piles at the council re-cycling center.

Fuck that said my Cornish cousins, our Council still has a proper dump where you just dump stuff you don't want and they took it all away in their white van.

Dark Lochnagar said...

Daisy, it sounds idealic. What's it called Shangri-la?

Dark Lochnagar said...

Banned, Our Cornish cousins have the same attitude as us because we are all Celts. That is a kind of, you can stick your rubbish up your council arse' attitude. The only problem arises when we get dozy fuckers from London arriving with their 'new fangled ideas'. Same things applies in East Anglia.
