I’ve been wanting to say it for ages, but until now I haven’t had the courage, so here goes…
RECYCLING IS A LOAD OF GARBAGE!
There, that feels better!
If you’d like to discuss this further, please feel free to contact me otherwise, stay tuned and I’ll endeavour to explain further.
What’s going on here?
Some fencing contractor (who shall remain nameless for the moment) has finished a job and left his/her waste on the footpath. So who is going to pick this up? And equally as important, who’s paying?
If you ever get a quote from a builder/contractor make sure that site clean up and removal of all waste is written into the contract. It is their responsibility, not the council.
Hands up anyone who has ever added a little of their own ‘stuff’ to someone else’s skip.
I mean lets face it. A big half empty bin in the middle of the street can be a great (and free) temptation. We’ll if this picture is anything to go by, I’d say the practice is becoming more prevalent (which dosen’t surprise me one little bit). I’d never seen a tarp pulled over a street skip until I saw this one just the other day, and it’s not there to keep the rain out.. You watch…we are going to start protecting our bins more and more as people gather more and more crap and disposal costs rise. Forget the bike lock…bring on the bin lock!
You know it’s winter when old fans just appear on footpaths, in parks or just generally scattered around the place. Not to worry…It’ll be heaters as summer approaches!
This photo is actually the back of a television remote control. I’ve seen this symbol before but I’m not exactly sure what it means and why it appears on some products and not others. Anyone know??
Yesterday we had three guys from the water company doing some work out side the front of our home. Have a look what they left me. How kind!
I’m considering getting them back here to clean it up. I know what this will do. This will just create ill feelings. But what are we supposed to do? Don’t worry about it? Just forget about it? Treat it like ‘one of those things’. You know ‘those things’. Those things that are : ’just a part of life!’. Well truth be known, I don’t want these sort of things to be a part of my life. Stay tuned…
Inside Waste Weekly is the trade magazine for the Waste Management Association of Australia. I’ve only just recently stumbled upon it.
What I’d really love you to do is to have a quick look here http://www.china-pix.com/multimedia/guiyu/
Then have a close look at the advertising included in the header of the Inside waste weekly website shown here.
Sometimes I’m not sure whether to laugh or cry…
If you were one of the 87 000 or so punters who visited the MCG for the opening game, Carl v Rich, you may have brought one of these blow up ‘whatever they are’s’ home.
They were included as part of a give away showbag. To be honest, I’m still not entirely sure what it is. I think it’s a football in the shape of a pair of boobs?? I could be totally wrong.
The point is, it’s now two weeks since the game, and I’d be willing to bet my house that every single one of these blow up things is either lying in a bin or buried in land fill. It’s sad and pathetic.
I’m not against Ralph magazine but this sort of thing could actually become illegal. I hope so. It’s just a total waste of everything.
Apologies for sounding so grumpy, but these ‘let’s give cheap crap away promotions’ really piss me off!
