My thanks to a loyal reader who pointed me in the direction of the knobheadery practised by Hertsmere Borough council, wrt recycling.
According to the Borehamwood Times, Paul Pritchard recently put an empty Thornton's chocolate box in his brown recycling box.
For you see children, Nanny doesn't want cardboard placed in the brown box.
As we all know, it should have been placed in the GREEN BOX!
Mr Pritchard was duly punished by Nanny for his environmental "crime".
Nanny refused to empty the brown box.
Nanny is unrepentant, a jobsworth from Hertsmere council said:
"It was not emptied because the cardboard was put in the wrong bin. This is a resident error because it should go in the green bin.- "Resident error"!
We do not take out contaminated items left on the top of a bin – because it is likely there is more underneath, either deliberately or by mistake.
We work hard to educate people about what can and cannot go in different bins and regularly send out information about on it."
- "Educate people"!
A true jobsworth attitude if ever I read one!
Odd though, because I was under the impression that the taxpayers pay the wage bills of the council; as such aren't they meant to work for us?
Councils are the enemies of the people!
