I WISH to voice my anger over what happened on my street. It was bad enough having to wait weeks for the normal grey bin collection.

But my complaint regards the collection of my recycling. For weeks we have been washing our milk bottles, tin cans, jam jars and all other bits and pieces we put for recycling.

We do this for a reason, don’t we? Yes, it takes extra time and effort, but most people do it.

I put my five boxes of recycling out, awaiting collection. When they arrived, they didn’t bring the recycling truck. They brought a dustbin truck and emptied everybody’s recycling into the back of it.

I am not happy at all about the fact that we make this effort for the environment, while the council appears not to care.
