Re: I know that feeling
Councils and stupid policies... why is that so familiar ?
One morning, I'm accosted by some numpty handing out little composting bins, and he refused to take "No" for an answer.
"Look, I live in an upstairs flat with no garden, and I don't even have enough space for window boxes - what the hell am I going to do with compost ?"
"Errr, I don't know, but Composting Is Good" (yes, "Composting Is Good" was the catch phrase)
After going round this argument in circles for several minutes, I accepted the box and sent him on his way. Once he was out of sight, I threw it into my green wheelie bin, because "Recycling is good".
Turns out everyone else had the same idea, and on the next collection day the bin men had a bit of a surprise... That green wheelie bin was completely full to the brim of these little composting bins !
Thinking back, I know I did a very bad thing, throwing it away in the green garden waste bin like that... being plastic, I should have stuffed it into a green recycling bag.
