Don't blame the binmen
WHILST the roll-out of the new refuse and recycling collections has been a shambles I don’t feel the binmen should be getting the blame.
Whoever approved the design of the new recycling lorries should be taking full responsibility. The old lorries allowed the binmen to sort on the move, and more importantly they were able to tip the items out of the boxes and bags in one go.
The new lorries require them to feed items in via slots on the side of the vehicle, which takes far longer, and I would imagine puts greater strain on their shoulders. The whole process is now much slower and less efficient as a result.
