OAps not second class citizens

WITH regard to the recent article about putting incontinence pads in the black bin, I think this is not only deplorable but a very unhygienic idea.

It has been embarrassing enough having the yellow bags out for collection without now having to put soiled, smelly pads in the black bin. Forget babies’ nappies, they are not used on elderly and disabled people who are already embarrassed enough by having to use these items.

Please rethink that we, the old people, have worked all our lives and don’t deserve to be treated as second class citizens.

Everyone grows old, including the people who have designed this smelly disgusting idea. Could you tell us who is going to supply all the bags to put these pads in before they go in the bin?
