Coming to a town near you?
what are those bins made out of?
The fundamental dishonesty of the environmental movement is appallingly brazen.
Parts of Japan have been doing something like this for a while. Makes sense to assign some of the responsibility to the consumer.
There is no saving the English this time.
I know most people have seen this, but go to 1:15 in...that was the first thing tat I thought of ...:)
If people aren’t separating garbage for the purpose of it going into a plasma arc power station, then it’s useless.
Where I live there is a separate recycling bin that gets dumped at the dump with the other trash. It’s just an excuse to fine people.
Aluminum cans always get put in the recycle bin. Those always have value. Glass bottles and newspapers do but only for convenience. They probably go into the landfill. Half the time glass goes in w/ regular garbage
In UK the eco-freaks are in control.
YOU VILL OBEY!!!
At first, I interpreted "rubbish" to mean its more common definition of "nonsense." Then I realized they were using it to mean "trash." It makes a lot of sense the way I first (mis)read it.
In Newcastle-under-Lyme Council, north Staffordshire, residents are asked to dump food waste in a silver slop bucket for food waste, which is then emptied into a larger, green outdoor bin every week.
I can see some major health issues here. Throughout history, epidemics have been initiated and maintained by poor sanitation conditions that allow pathogens and disease carrying pests to fluorish. It's nice to see that England has forgotten its disease-ridden past and is going back to the old ways (/sarc).
My trash pick up is not included with my taxes, I pay a contractor $50 quarterly to pick it up. Officially, they won’t accept old tires or yard waste, other than those two items, they pick up whatever I put to the curb, in cans or bags. If I have an old stove or refrigerator, they will pick that up too, all I have to do is give them a couple days notice.
The actual pick up guys have told me “unofficially”, that they will pick up tires too and yard waste, if it isn’t too excessive. It probably doesn’t hurt that I give them Christmas presents every year and thank them occasionally for doing a great job. I have even written to their company commending them. If the occasional raccoon knocks over a can or tears into a bag, they pick that up too.
For $200 per year, I pile it out there on Wednesday and they pick it up. Free enterprise is great.
If all the town residents lined up every morning on Main Street, dropped their pants, got down on their hands and knees, and waited patiently while the town police “did” each and every one of them, one at a time, who would you find more despicable, the people or the police?
Of course both, but still...
Can you spell S H E E P
They’ve already installed trash bin microchip sensors on 2.6 million British households...
Penn and Teller did a show about this. It was hilarious.
I separate re-cyclables because it saves me money....let me explain.
I live alone in a semi-rural area. The county requires me to either sign up for trash pick-up or have an account at the transfer station. The pick-up will take ALL household waste, however it costs $30/mo. plus whatever the “fuel surcharge” happens to be at the time. I generate about 8-9 trashbags of waste/mo. including cardboard, newspapers, magazines, #1 and #2 plastic and cans. If I take it to the Xfer station myself, they charge me $1/trashbag. By separating out the recyclables mentioned above at home and putting them in the bins at the Xfer station, I reduce my load to 4 bags/mo. which I store in two covered garbage cans until they’re full. At that time I go to the station which is less than 6 miles from my house and takes me less than 2 miles out of my way when I go food shopping.
No social or environmental concerns at all.....only money.
Years ago (40 years) a city in the US started intensive recycling requiring people to separate colored glass from clear, plastic from paper, garbage in a separate container.
Everyone felt good about recycling. Then someone decided to see what the city was doing with the separated goods and followed the pick up trucks.
The city trucks took the separated trash to....the local land fill and dumped it all there, and covered it up.
But everyone FELT SO GOOD!
