On the subject of recycling: congratulations to all with an interest in the good news - A ten-point voluntary agreement called the Waste Collection Commitment has been drawn up by WRAP and councils are being urged to sign up.
Re Phillip ward's announcement - "Our research shows residents up and down the country have a common view about what they expect from a collection scheme..."
is a new way of working, a way for the Council collections workers to relate without the "manage your business for you" earnestness which makes some at least somewhat cynical about recycling uneconomical plastics - unable to imagine the european concept of "large clean organisation . If plastics are recycled extensively in some european countries what can be learnt, who needs to do it, and how should the organisational message be better communicated?
We do not always deal in bulk and do not want our recycling bin lid ripped off in disgust! Surely those guys who work all weathers can find a new way to appreciate their job?
