Midnight bin man, we are watching

IFULLY support Dudley Council’s attempt at rubbish collection and recycling and, although it could be improved on, I adhere to the rules – separating the recycling and sticking to the three bin bag limit.

If Ihavemore, I take it to the tip, like most people in our very sociable neighbourhood.

However, we nowseem to have a new addition to the already long list of antisocial cretins that are plaguing and blighting our society – The Midnight Bin Man.

This chap creeps around after dark dumping bags of his unwanted rubbish on the drives of other residents due for a refuse collection the next day, thereby exceeding their permitted three and resulting in refuse being left uncollected and for someone else to deal with.

Iamsick and tired of the litter and anti-social behaviour from this thoughtless person.

Our neighbourhood is watching for you.

You've got to give him and his family credit though. To consume enough food to generate such a vast amount of rubbish is pretty good going. I suggest you monitor the after-dark activities of grossly overweight people initially. We're a family of 4 (and a dog), and I forgot to put the rubbish out last week and I've still only managed to fill 3 bags. That's without recycling properly, too.

We have such characters here too. However there are that many people in our road who put out less than 3 bags, they just top up the numbers! Where's the problem with that? And you must remember that many people don't have access to a car, so how are they meant to get their extra rubbish to the tip? Are there special buses being put on these days? Surely that would make it far more expensive!!

I would like to respond to a readers letter in last weeks News concerned the Dudley Council are not doing enough with regards to recycling as nonsense,the council is delivering it's obligation to it's recycling programme as far as i'm concerned,
unless you would like to follow suit with Sandwell and have FIVE bins to contend with(it's almost like a full time job) i certainly do not, also spare a thought for my 82year old mother-in-law who lives in Sandwell she cannot maintain this regime with her ill health....this is an example i witnessed you have a small grey bin in your kitchen for food waste you empty this into a larger brown bin which you put out for an operative who walks with a wheelie bin and empties the brown bin into this before being emptied into the dustbin wagon, plus you have a green top bin,a blue top bin and a black top bin they need to get real.
