Bot­tles row rum­bling on

Stirling Observer - - REMEMBRANCE DAY -

The story in last Wed­nes­day’s edi­tion (Novem­ber 8) of the Stir­ling Ob­server re­gard­ing over­flow­ing bot­tle­banks as a re­sult of the coun­cil switch to monthly glass col­lec­tions has drawn comment from our read­ers on our Face­book page.

Shan-michelle Shirlaw said: “Even if they had given wheelie bins to ac­com­mo­date the once a month col­lec­tion the re­cy­cle point at Co-op in Bridge of Al­lan is on over­flow as well. It’s not just a dis­grace it’s dan­ger­ous. Peo­ple will just start putting them in other bins that have space and the whole point of re­cy­cling will be out the win­dow.”

Becks McLaren said:“Our thoughts on this should have been con­sid­ered or re­quested be­fore the change in col­lec­tion was im­ple­mented or even dis­cussed.”

Bryan Grieve added:“Were they ex­pect­ing peo­ple to drink half as much to com­ply with their wishes, what about the tax pay­ers wishes, or is that to much to ask?”

Also at­tract­ing de­bate and dis­cus­sion on the Ob­server Face­book page was news that Cam­bus­bar­ron is set to be hit by six months of road­works as part of a £270,000 gas pipes up­grade.

Vivien Robert­son Ne Laing posted on so­cial me­dia:“Has any­one taken a sur­vey as to how many road­works are go­ing on in this town at the mo­ment. Seems to me they want us to stay in our houses and not travel any­where.”

Alex Speed com­mented:“It’s the state of the roads after they have com­pleted the work that’s the prob­lem. Cheap tar­mac and un­even sur­faces. That is why the roads are in such a mess.”

Robert For­shaw added: “£270,000 bud­get and it’s tak­ing them six months. Is it one man with a spade?”

Alan Clater hit back, re­spond­ing: “An­other moan­ing arm­chair civil en­gi­neer.”

The work is set to start on Mon­day, Novem­ber 27.
