Brighton's Recycling Policy

Here's a gemusing and gentle start to the week, courtesy of Brighton and Hove City Council.

They sent me the above letter recently, informing me about the recycling day change.

Fair enough.

However, can you spot something rather odd in the above letter children?

Yes, that's right:
"..we need to change your fortnightly Friday collection day to fortnightly on a Friday." no chanage at all then?

Why go to the trouble and expense of sending me that letter, or is there something that I have missed here?

Visit The Orifice of Government Commerce and buy a collector's item.

Visit The Joy of Lard and indulge your lard fantasies.

Show your contempt for Nanny by buying a T shirt or thong from Nanny's Store. is brought to you by "The Living Brand"

Visit Oh So Swedish Swedish arts and handicrafts

Why not really indulge yourself, by doing all the things that Nanny really hates? Click on the relevant link to indulge yourselves; Food, Bonking, Gifts and Flowers, Groceries


  1. Ken,

    Perhaps its a cynical way to increase their recycling figures.......All these letters are recyclable aren't they?

  2. They are in fact printed on recycled, chlorine-free paper (according to the right hand corner of the letter)

  3. Ah - but there's TWO Fridays in each fortnight. Perhaps it's now going to be the other one?

    1. You reckon that's what he was trying to convey?

      It's definitely a Friday, that's for sure, we have it on good authority

    perhaps you should write to Terry Standing and ask if he has an qualifications relevant to his job.


  5. I love the way councils want it out by 6am and threaten to prosecute if you leave it outside on the wrong day. So on recycling day don't ever plan a lie-in! In any case you will be woken by the neighbours clattering down the drive with their bottles and cans.
