    Plastic, cans and cartons but only once you've been given the red bin :celtman2:

    You'd need a degree in waste management to get things right.

    My Mum hasn't complained to me about this yet, so I doubt she's got the red bin yet. :giggle1:

    It's the same in most part of the country, including here in Ayrshire. It's surely not the end of the world to sort rubbish. It does tend to come along one or two items at a time rather than huge piles. It's not very difficult and I'm sure if you phoned the council they would explain how it works, if you're unsure.

    Red bin is for cardboard now. Used to be that all plastic and cardboard went in the blue bin. Then that wasnt complicated enough for them so they brought out another bin and are now forcing everyone to separate plastic into the blue bin and cardboard into the red bin.

    Just sack all the council bin collectors and let the people actually paying the council tax keep paying it and also do the job they were supposed to be doing.

    Fannies that press the button at traffic lights to cross the road, then nip over when there’s a gap in traffic leavin you in the car waitin at the red light even though there’s no * crossing.
    Feel like we should have temporary traffic lights where at night you just give way. Hate waiting at a red at night for absolutely nothing coming in any direction other that coz the light says I need to wait.

    I work an easy but long number on Sundays.

    The guy I work with on it sleeps every single time. I can’t do anything about it without being a jobsworth grass.

    I wouldn’t mind but we need to be on call in the facility and I always end up being the only one paying attention (but I’m not getting paid extra for not sleeping).

    I don’t want to sleep, so I prefer commenting that he “really should be sleeping BEFORE you come to work”.

    Neither of us like 6am starts on a Sunday but at the end of the day only one of us is getting to bed early on a Saturday (like a professional)

    Literally right as I’m typing this he has nodded off again. This time beside a window where people on street level can see.

    I’m aware that the company has him switching between days and nights throughout the week but at end of day if that prevents you doing the job then don’t take the job.

    Stumbled across FYI on Sky News, kids doing the news

    Great idea and fair play to them, just feels a bit uncomfortable watching. There is a ginger kid who is trivially annoying, very.
