Over the years, I have come to consider myself as something of a world champion recycler. I religiously wash and sort out rubbish to ensure that what should be recycled, is recycled (albeit not checking all the different plastic types because, quite frankly, expecting the public to do that is crazy). I like to think the environment might be a little better for my contribution.
I find it quite frustrating that most things we buy are packaged as though they were fine china and wonder how the world will look when humanity has finished raping and pillaging it of every resource going so that we are having to just eat and drink what we can get locally. Let us hope that the boffins find something clean to replace oil…and can save bees from being decimated. I wouldn’t want to be here if and when things start to collapse…assuming of course that it hasn’t already begun.
Anyway…how negative is all of that? I only came here to post about rubbish collections…not an interesting thing, you may think…I would have agreed until I saw the truck collecting the recycling…a robotic arm picking up bins! Amazing! Woe betide you if you were on the pavement when one of these babies trundled past and picked up your bin…the driver doesn’t even have to get out of the cab!
