We in Hackney have received plenty of literature of late promoting the benefits of recycling. A cause that I wholly support.
The problem is: once you have read this literature and been convinced to act on in, how do you dispose of it? The Council, you see, has not collected the recycling boxes for nearly a month.
If they don't come soon, we'll have to empty the contents of ours into the bin.
Hackney Council - you couldn't make it up, really.
Here in Croydon, we've had recycling boxes for nearly a year now. Not once have we been told what can and what can't go in there, and they've been emptied just twice. Several times I've had to empty the contents of the recycling bin into the main bin just so that it would get taken away, because it was beginning to rot and stank to high heaven.
Recycling collected this morning.
