WHAT a fuss about rubbish!

Almost all our rubbish is now recyclable: paper, glass, plastic bottles, cardboard 'tetra' packs, cans, garden waste and, of course, kitchen waste.

Half the world has too little to eat. While we have so much we can afford to throw meat away? Where do all these maggots, flies and vermin come from if not attracted by meat? Leftovers can be turned into another meal, and bones and carcasses can be boiled, the bones then wrapped in newspaper and put in whichever bag is being collected later that week.

The garden and kitchen waste keeps perfectly well in the brown sacks if a piece of cardboard is first placed in the bottom of the sack. Our rubbish will continue to be collected every week
