Oh dear, aside from some council residents being drowned in a sea of uncollected rubbish there are those who also appear to be drowning in a tidal wave of council bins.
The Taxpayers' Alliance has done a survey that shows certain councils are pushing their recycling mantra to extremes.
Seemingly the average council now expects residents to sort their household waste into four bins, bags and caddies.
However, Newcastle-under-Lyme wins the prize for taking the recycling mantra to the extreme by insisting that is hapless citizens sort their waste between nine containers!
Newcastle-under-Lyme uses separate bins for refuse, cardboard, plastics, paper, glass and cans, textiles and garden waste. It also hands out two food waste caddie, one for putting food scraps in for the kitchen and another for kerbside collection.
Farking hell, what a spectacular waste of time and resources!
Twenty other local authorities (including Chelmsford, Aberdeenshire, Guildford and Middlesbrough) give residents seven or more containers.
This is a remarkable con trick being perpetrated on the council taxpayers of Britain. As has been reported by the BBC, certain councils have been happily passing on this "recycled" waste to companies which then dump it in landfills in India.
On a side note, re alleged "global warming", there is in fact a simple one off solution to this "threat" to the planet.
Paint every roof of every house on the planet white.
The reflection of the sun's rays will reduce the alleged rise in global temperature by a statistically meaningful amount.
