Can someone explain?

Have your say

At 9.50am today, Thursday, September 29, 2016, I passed a blue bin collection lorry on Halifax Road between Cowper Avenue and Salt Box Lane.

I saw one of the operatives tip the contents of the blue box into the blue wheelie bin without as much as a glance at its contents.

There isn’t much point in the council threatening to fine anybody who puts the wrong item in the wrong container if the collecting gangs are acting like this.

I saw the same action a few weeks ago near the Northern General but thought it was a one-off.

Clearly it wasn’t.

Can someone explain this to me please?
