Mystery bin dump on council doorstep
Date Added: 02/09/2013
Staff at Sandy Town Council were interested to find a green bin full of soil in front of their gates this Monday morning with a note from a new resident explaining that as "the council" had refused to empty their bin they were returning it to its owner. Whist we can perhaps understand the resident's frustration Sandy Town Council is not responsible for green bins - all domestic refuse and recycling is the responsibility of Central Bedfordshire Council so the wrong target was picked for the protest. Unfortunately the resident did not leave any contact details so we can't explain the situation direct. But the CBC green waste recycling scheme does not include garden soil so its not surprise that the heavy bin of soil could not be emptied. Now we've got to find a way to get rid of it . . .
