I have had a serious report from the Grange Estate on the west side of Penkridge about their collections of recycled products. It would appear that – although South Staffs. Council are asking for materials to be SORTED in separate containers (i.e. paper, tins, plastic, glass) - that when the contractors come round with a wheelie bin to collect these materials (it is a paved area with many houses some distance from the road where the lorries park), that THEY TIP ALL THE DIFFERENT RECYCLED MATERIALS INTO ONE WHEELIE BIN.
Because of this, the householder concerned did not separate the items next time (“why should I, when they put them together when collecting them”). The contractor then refused to take away their recycled products.
This was reported to South Staffs. Council who contacted their contractor who said they used two different wheelie bins to collect both types of recycled materials. THIS WAS UNTRUE as they were watched doing the job and ALL THE CONTAINERS WERE TIPPED INTO ONE WHEELIE BIN.
Is this an isolated occurrence or have other householders in Penkridge noted this happening? It has been reported in the past that different recycled containers have been tipped into the same compartment of the contractors vehicle? I would be interested to hear Penkridge residents comments.
