Meeting on the ledge

(or why I don't get out much…..)

Bin chips

I hate to say I told you so, but I told you so back in May last year:

A trial in South Norfolk of putting a chip in bins to measure how much refuse you put out has failed miserably. BBC Radio 4 said that it had led to a massive increase in fly-tipping. I’d agree that some way of changing our ‘throw-away’ society is necessary, but none of the methods I’ve seen so far have been at all workable, as this experiment proves. There are some very clever people out there in Councils, but until some common sense and understanding of human nature is used in understanding problems, rather than simply ticking boxes to meet arbitrary targets, this kind of shambles will continue……
