… or at least angst a bit.
Colchester seems to have a pretty active recycling program. Unfortunately we’re not a part of it. Currently they can’t do curbside pick up from buildings that are more than two floors. Don’t ask me why, I don’t understand it myself. After years upon years of recycling a significant amount of waste we are now forced to put recyclables in the dustbin. Every time I bin the something that could be recycled it makes me cringe.
There is a bright spot. Essex County Council does support a number of recycling centres where you can drop of particular materials. Luckily for us there’s one of these about a five minute walk from our flat. We can deposit cans. bottles, magazines, paper and cloth. Sadly, plastic still ends up in the bin.
