PostSubject: wheelie bins   Thu Jun 19, 2008 4:46 pm

Just heard on the news last night that the government wants to go ahead with the rolling out of the weighing your wheelie bin scheme.

This means having electronic weighing devices added to the bin and the bin wagon to calculate the cost of the rubbish your throwing out and getting a personal charge.

2 Points.

1. Anyone could put rubbish in your bin while youre out at work.

2. One council has already said its failed miserably, the weighing is innacurate.

Yet this labour government wants to push ahead, what utter nonsense!

That sounds ludicrous.

I'm all for waste control - but that sounds not very well thought out. It would cost a lot of extra cash, and not to mention the time.
