Waste Segregation is a Joke

Post by Spirit on Tue 30 Dec 2008, 9:01 am

Once again Public Services have let us down.

The Fontaine Vinery site was set up so that commercial waste could be segregated rather than being dumped en-mass into Mont Cuet. A brilliant idea. They then changed the opening hours to 9am-3.30pm, meaning that the two busiest periods for builder to dump were no longer available, so most now tip at Mont Cuet and fill the dump unnecessarily.

They have now closed the site throughout the festive period so that those of us still working have no choice but to tip everything at Mont Cuet. The daft thing is that the site is being manned, but they are only accepting commercial recyclables, mainly glass from pubs and hotels. I am now heading to Mont cuet with another load which need not go into landfill but there is no other facility avaiable to me.

Sounds like the (lip)service they offered over here when they started to 're-cycle' newspapers etc.

They set up a skip near the main dump, and would shout and scowl at you if you tried to put paper on the main pile un-seperated... then after the dump closed to the public they'd tip the skip straight into the incinerator with the rest, could they didn't have any other process in place.
