Re: Do you think Recycling is one of the keys to saving the Earth?

Something very rare happened yesterday finally, they actually collected my box of glass for recycling.. I was astounded.. They had ignored it for a couple of months...One of my neighbours said he gave up putting them out to collect months back, now he gets the children to take them to a bottle bank a couple of roads away..

Re: Do you think Recycling is one of the keys to saving the Earth?

The councils bring these ideas in but they have got no idea what happens when they are collected,i was speaking to someone i know who has just started working on the bins.
and he was telling me that a lot of people dont believe in recycling,so i said i dont not for everything so he said when the bin lorries are full
they have to be taken to landfill sites he was surprised when everything was dumped together,they dont sort them out. he said you dont look surprised i said im not the government fat cats are sitting in their offices barking out orders and they dont care

Re: Do you think Recycling is one of the keys to saving the Earth?

It is a problem and there should be the exact same system for all, not different systens for each borough council... Standardising it makesit  cheaper and more effective..

Last time we were at a pow wow on arrival we had to pay £2 for a local council purple sack for general rubbish, we asked about usung the recycling bins in site and was told No..  Two quid a sack they are onto a winner there as there were 100's of us camping there for 4 days!!

Re: Do you think Recycling is one of the keys to saving the Earth?

This is not about Recycling its about screwing the people out of money.they know people need to put their rubbish somewhere so they charge what they want,
 i dont know whats it is like where you live but councils now will charge if you drop litter even if it is an accident they got these sad people booking ya and charging you.they can only do this on council land.
why i say that is because two weeks ago a friend went to work only part time in a suppermarket a lady drove into the car park  she opened her door pieces of paper fell out.
 some guy went to her and gave her a ticket.so my friend went in told her boss ,he went outside told this guy he was not supposed to be on their as it was owned by a private owner,he got the ticket of the woman,who was nearly in tears at what had happened.tore it up and got the police to remove the piece of scum his words of the car park.

Re: Do you think Recycling is one of the keys to saving the Earth?

I was working for our Public Works department way back in 2001. I helped get started our own trash service then recycling. We have two sizes of bins for trash and a blue bin for recycling. A few years later we stated with the Casino. It wasn't until I went back to work for Casino in 2011 that I suggested we recycle at the Casino. I had been laid off for a couple years so i thought they were already doing it.  I guess they could never get anyone to approve it. Too much work I heard. Sure it is; it all takes effort. But we have a fantastic system now. I work for the department that separates the bottles and plastic. Then we have a cardboard crusher that goes to recycling. Even the Hotel recycles all their soaps and shampoos and it goes to a company that sends it to other needy countries. It all started with me asking "Why are we not recycling here" I called the tribe up and asked the one in charge to speak to our department's head. They had a  meeting and it started in baby steps. 
We're doing quite well with it all.

Re: Do you think Recycling is one of the keys to saving the Earth?

That is good about those little shampoo and shower gel mini bottles being given to the needy.. I had lots from my travels and I took two bags of umopened ones to the local womens refuge.. 
The hospial where I worked used to save short dated packs of suture small sterile dressings etc and give it to the local Vets and short dated drugs etc and soon to be obsolete equipment was shipped to Third World countries who were so grateful for anything to help..
Really all kinds of things can be recycled if people use their brains..  But sadly there is still a lot of waste.
