It’s not rubbish

PUBLISHED: 11:57 21 January 2011

Am I the only person in the Exmouth area who thinks that the new rubbish collection system is a good idea?

Judging by the recent correspondence in this paper, perhaps I am. Personally, I am pleased that the council is trying to encourage more recycling, better disposal of food waste and less material for landfill.

The recent collection problems were a result of unusually heavy snow and the Christmas bank holidays, leading to longer periods of time when rubbish wasn’t collected. I suggest that we do not blame the bin men or the collection system, but give it time to settle down.

The lack of gritting on side roads, however, is another question...
