Read­ing the rub­bish

South Waikato News - - OPINION -

On Fri­day, March 2, I was shocked to see, dur­ing a re­cy­cle pick up, two work­ers in front, be­fore the truck came up to the kerb, were rip­ping open a plas­tic bag and pro­ceed­ing to rum­mage through and read each side of test print sheets.

It was in front of where I live. The worker saw me and iden­ti­fied me with the pa­per I threw out.

Luck­ily noth­ing im­por­tant was on the sheets but it raised a con­cern. If I wrote some­thing on pa­per it might not be safe from re­cy­cle work­ers.

My ad­vice to any­one is, get a pa­per shred­der.

It has left me shocked and all pa­per will go out in the rub­bish bag in fu­ture. N Leathers
