Oh dear… not that long ago I was trying to be very good about recycling stuff and was rinsing out some cans and stuff. For some strange (stupid) reason I washed a can up like it was a mug in the washing up bowl and sliced up my hand! (Yes, stupid – I already admitted that!). Your cartoon made me cringe all over again at the memory of it!
drinks cans are hard to clean. So I don’t. But i did put the entire collection of empty Ginger Beer cans int he recycling, not in the bin.
I bought a big crate of Ginger Beer at the cash’n'carry, because I couldn’t find that type anywhere else. good times.
My mother puts her used milk bottles through the dish-washer before returning them to the milkman.
You mean just rinsing them out is not enough? You mean that because of people like me this man is being consumed by the poison of his bitterness? How about raising his salary 20p per hour so busy people can continue tossing jars and cans in any degree of cleanliness into recycling bins. I love a win-win situation.
I admit that I don’t have a bin – someone kept stealing them, but the darlings who empty the bins into their truck now accept my recycling in plastic bags.
If we do that he will lose his job.
But, St, that is the sort of excuse kids use for dropping litter on the floor. Perhaps, like in school, there are better things for that man to be getting on with, unfortunately he can’t because he is doing a job that in reality only takes us a couple of seconds – if we bother to do it when we first open jars/ cans etc
I will never forget my mum giving me that look that only mums can when I responded that I had not washed out the milk bottle before putting it out for recycling.
I have always done so since.
My son is 15 now and about a foot taller than me, though he was telling his mates recently that there’s a certain look from his mum and when he sees that – there’s no messing! Love it! (By the way he’s a great 15 year old, even though he does need ‘the look’ every so often!)
Hey Maddie, tell me which local authority you live in. I want to move there.
perhaps this man’s task allocation should be looked at. maybe he could take a turn on label removing for a while to vary his day? or are we meant to remove labels as well?…. the local authority leaflet didn’t specify
Hmmm…maybe we should buy him a dishwasher?…
