‘Mad’ recycling change

Wishaw Press - - YOUR VIEWS -

Last week a Wishaw man blasted the coun­cil’s de­ci­sion not to al­low small vans to use North La­nark­shire recycling cen­tres. He be­lieves the new pol­icy will only en­cour­age fly­tip­ping in pic­turesque set­tings around the town. Al­ready see­ing the rise in fly tip­ping where I stay.

Ab­so­lutely non­sen­si­cal de­ci­sion I am afraid.

I un­der­stand that busi­nesses have been try­ing to evade pay­ing to dis­pose of their rub­bish, but to then have a broad sweep­ing de­ci­sion that is pu­ni­tive for all is beyond me.

Tar­get the right peo­ple in the first in­stance! Gwen Henderson Never heard such rub­bish!

Pre­pos­ter­ous idea. Bobby Mclaugh­lin North La­nark­shire Coun­cil’s fault to­tally.

I got re­ported for keep­ing a skip in my own drive­way.

No won­der there is loads of fly tip­ping. Davie Gri­er­son This place is a joke. San­dra Lees All the vans are now go­ing to Hamil­ton. Jean Weir Kind-hearted cud­dle cot fundraiser Angela Quinn was recog­nised for years of self­less work af­ter she won our Say it with Flow­ers com­pe­ti­tion. The Wishaw mum has helped oth­ers through pro­vid­ing cud­dle cots for Thewishaw Press have kicked off a fan­tas­tic new fea­ture to find our read­ers’dig­i­tal pic­ture of the week.

We have teamed up with Mor­risons in Kirk Road who will pro­vide a FREE fam­ily meal for four (two adults and two chil­dren) at their cafe for ev­ery read­ers’dig­i­tal pic­ture of the week that we print in our news­pa­per.

It can be pho­to­graph, selfie or im­age that you or your chil­dren have taken on a dig­i­tal cam­era, ipad, or smart­phone.

We are look­ing for ei­ther a pic­ture that you have taken in thewishaw area or per­haps a selfie of your fam­ily while you were on hol­i­day at home or abroad, or lo­cal un­der­tak­ers and was nom­i­nated by her sis­ter Pauline Cut­ler, who has also been in­volved in their fundrais­ing ven­ture called An­gels Re­mem­bered. Our read­ers on so­cial me­dia were chil­dren’s draw­ing on an ipad.

We would also like pic­tures of your spe­cial oc­ca­sions, such as wed­ding an­niver­saries, chil­dren’s birthday par­ties, re­tire­ments dos, fam­ily cel­e­bra­tions, party pic­tures, club or group pic­tures, or any other big day or char­ity event.

All you have do is send your pic­ture to us at [email protected] wishaw­press.co.uk or con­tact us through our Face­book andtwit­ter pages.

Please make sure you in­clude your name, ad­dress and con­tact de­tails and in­for­ma­tion about your pic­ture.

de­lighted for kind hearted Angela.

Well done ladies.

Angela and Polly and their fam­i­lies have done some fan­tas­tic work to help oth­ers. Your flow­ers are lovely Angela. Pauline Crozier Well done ladies. Anne Marie Mccul­loch Well done Angela and Pauline. Pamela Don­nelly A New­mains bus com­pany last week claimed con­stant road­works in and around Wishaw are caus­ing chaos to their ser­vices. JMB Travel hit out at the coun­cil af­ter they failed to no­tify them about the re­cent works be­ing car­ried out in Nether­ton. Read­ers on our Face­book page were split on the is­sue. Com­plain­ing about road works is just silly.

Yeah it’s an­noy­ing at times but it’s bet­ter than go­ing through pot holes. Get a grip. Paul Jor­dan The grief and abuse we (road work­ers) get for fix­ing the roads is a dis­grace and the moan­ing be­cause it takes time is a joke.

I sup­pose ev­ery­one would pre­fer pot­holes ev­ery­where. Mark Go­van You can’t move for buses in Wishaw. Nicky Jenk­ins
