LETTER: Everything to do with money

The new regime of fortnightly household bin collections had nothing to do with recycling and everything to do with money.

Why can’t they just be honest for once. There are many reasons why people don’t recycle – laziness, apathy, and ignorance of what can and can’t be recycled.

Why is there so little information? For example, how many of us know that recycling should never be put into plastic bags, or that aerosol cans should be completely empty before going in the bin?

How about the WSCT doing a regular - ‘This week’s recycling tip’. It would be interesting to see after a year whether we have managed to exceed the 50 per cent goal.
