I am so mad this morning as I walked back from dropping the little lad at Nursery, I passed a dustbin lorry only to see the driver drop a wrapper out of the window and onto the floor! I expect that that this is Scunthorpe council’s policy on waste to keep road sweepers in a job. I would have said something but I’m not a big bloke and he was. I can’t explain how mad this makes me, not only is it a lack of respect for his and my environment but it is not the first time that I have had to go into the street after the bin men have been and pick up rubbish that was not there before.
After getting no joy over the phone this is the email I wrote to Scunthorpe council’s customer services and as many other e-mails as I could find.
I am writing to complain about an incident which I witnessed this morning, I am not in the habit of complaining but this was unbelievable. As I walked passed a dustbin lorry on MORLEY RD DN172DN the driver dropped a chocolate rapper out of the window and on to the road. The registration number was Y942 0FU.
How can people expect to be greener and kinder to the environment when the very people who are supposed to be the stewards of the streets have no respect for their environment themselves. This is the reason there is so much rubbish on the streets, lack of respect and lack of education. I make great attempts at lowering my carbon footprint and minimizing my waste that goes into landfill and this sort of thing makes me very annoyed.
