Bin the WAG

First published in Letters

YES Mrs J Mitchell of Exeter Road, Newport, I agree as many would. Streets and driveways are looking like tips, who on this, decided that its need of six receptacle boxes you should have outside your door for collection on various days, well very confusing. Our streets and driveways look like tips. Who decided we need six different boxes on our doorsteps, all for collection on different days? It’s all very confusing.

Someone told me it was the WAG’s idea. now I may understand as again I see as Jim Dyer Stockton Road wrote on January 27th Argus do we need this Cardiff Assembly, no way would I use it or AMs for any purpose, to me it’s a total waste of money, which Wales could use more for needs with this cost and would be beneficial for Wales and Rosemary Butler AM suggestion to recruit more AMs is an insult to the Welsh Economy. As J Dyer of Stockton Road wrote, the Welsh Assembly is a total waste of money. Do we need it? No way. That money could be better spent elsewhere in Wales.

The only real way to improve recycling would be - IMO - to have a dedicated facility that sorts all the rubbish into recyclable and non-recyclable materials.

Instead, the WAG seems intent on building a facility to burn it... madness.

It's not workable.

It would cost more to set up the facility and pay the staff running it - a lot more.

Sure, sorting the recyclables from the waste is a bit of an inconvenience, but I'd rather do that than take money from other services to pay for a sorting facility.

Have you seen how much the incinerator is going to cost? Nearly half a billion quid if memory serves. All to burn waste that is mostly, if not completely recyclable. Even if the recycling operation costs £100,000 a month, it would take them 416 years to get through that much dosh.

Fair comment. The system as it is is unpopular, hideously complicated and entirely unsuited to flats and houses with no garages or gardens. We have roads in Newport where you can't paint the outside without a permit (as it's listed) with dozens of plastic containers lining the street.

This contract would have gone to Sita which is yet another multi-national company but is actually an affiliate of Gaz de France and probably another reason why big Rose was made a dame.
Wales and indeed the UK has been sold off to these big companies and along with our supposed democracy we've lost our identity.
Ain't globalisation great?

Globalisation cuts both ways though. I wonder if the Thai people complain about the presence of Tesco.

Indeed it did. It's just £700 m a year worse off now. But it has plenty more windbags on the public payroll now too.

Yeah I'm sure the Thais don't mind having their businesses ruined by Tesco Lotus.
The Koreans govt asked their constituents and they said they didn't want Tesco in their country.
