Mixing it up
This morning while visiting a friend in Downlands Avenue we watched the ‘bin men’ and were surprised to see at two of the houses they tipped the glass contents from the black boxes into the green bin! Returning to my house in Cranston Ave, I re-checked the book on do’s and don’ts of recycling and it states that the green recycling wheelie does not take glass. Later when they came to my house, I waited by my bin and asked why they were mixing the collection. I couldn’t understand the explanation but his colleague came to my neighbour and shot all her glass box contents into her wheelie - so what is going on? why are they mixing them? can you solve it for me? 2
