‘Mad’ recycling change
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.

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
