I thought I had recycling down to a fine art, but when the compost wasn’t emptied, I was told by a little jobsworth it was because I had put peelings in it.

I’ve had this bin for yonks and have always done this. Now I’m supposed to put them in the waste food bin, which I thought was for cooked food only. Never mind, instead of doing them a favour, I can go back to building my own compost heap!
