Ooh...I feel a Prats of The Week Award coming upon me!
This week it goes to the binmen of Blackpool and Darwen Council.
Binmen and councils again!
Yes folks, it seems that the binmen and council of Darwen have a wee problem with teabags. They have refused to empty Donald MacKenzie's (a disabled pensioner) bin, because it was 'contaminated' by a stray teabag.
Mr MacKenzie found his wheelie-bin unemptied with a note saying 'food waste - t-bag'.
I am very impressed that the binmen have the time and energy to look through someone's bin with such thoroughness.
Mr MacKenzie complained to Darwen Council, but was told he should not have left out food.
The council's Peter Hunt (rhymes with....) said:
"Food waste can cause contamination that results in whole truckloads of recyclables having to go to landfill, so we do have to be careful."
Why do we pay council tax?
Why do we have local councils?
The binmen and council of Darwen, well deserving Prats of The Week.
