On New Years Day we went for a walk around our nearest favourite beauty spot and my little boy spotted a delightful little Robin. I’m told, by way of interest, that the Robin is Britain’s national bird, voted so nearly forty years ago by the British public. Anyway, we stopped and me laddy took some photographs but the sweet little thing was rather camera-shy and would not cooperate at all. It was way too swift to be snapped and the best we could get was this picture below. You can just about see the little Redbreast.
One thing that spoiled the walk was the sight of dumped rubbish on the road-side along the way One pile was full of bottles and the other piles, and there were several more, consisted of various bits of household waste.
We were dismayed.
We all have more rubbish than normal to dispose of at Christmastime. I had lot’s of trash to get rid of but most of it was collected by the recycling van so it required very little effort on my part. There’s really no excuse for dumping rubbish so irresponsibly. It’s wrong on so many levels. All that perfectly recyclable stuff just tossed out onto the road creating potential dangers to wildlife and causing an unsightly blur on a pretty country lane. Disgusting!
People are saying that if our waste is to be weighed and we are to be charged for any excess then this tipping will become commonplace. Well I say that exceeding the weight limits would and should be a rarity if people managed their waste responsibly so such unethical furtive dumping would be unnecessary. There are five people living in our house and we can never fill our wheelie bin because we see much of our waste as being recyclable and we act accordingly.
Get it sorted!
