‘Red tag’ bins scheme

South La­nark­shire Coun­cil is crack­ing down on items be­ing put in the wrong bins.

A red tag sys­tem is now in op­er­a­tion mean­ing con­tam­i­nated bins will not be col­lected with house­hold­ers told to re­move of­fend­ing items. On­line read­ers had their say on the move...

Lynn Gib­son posted: “This is just stupid on the part of South La­nark­shire Coun­cil. I live in a block of flats and neigh­bours put what­ever they like in other folks’ bins with­out even ask­ing.”

Donna McDougall said: “Will just dis­cour­age folk from re­cy­cling if you ask me. How about crack­ing down on more press­ing is­sues like anti-so­cial be­hav­iour and ben­e­fit fraud? That’ll save the tax­pay­ers some money!”

Amanda Mills wrote: “They don’t empty re­cy­cling bins any­way... that’s two pick-ups they have missed for our flats (four weeks) now. I can’t use my bin and house bin is full/over­flow­ing with ad­di­tional re­cy­cling. It’s a com­plete and ut­ter dis­grace.”

Paul Clarke posted: “So you’re telling me bin­men are go­ing to have time to sift through the con­tents of the bin to de­cide whether it is suit­able for them to take and dis­pose of, when they can’t al­ways make it round on ac­tual re­cy­cling day?”

Caro­line Creasey said: “You will just end up black bag­ging ev­ery­thing then so they will take it or tak­ing it to a coun­cil dump which will de­feat the pur­pose of re­cy­cling.”
