My biggest shock is that they do not have separate bins for recyclables and garden/kitchen waste, instead everything goes into landfill. I have discussed this with the complex resident managers and they say that the cost of having & emptying the bins is too high and that it all goes into landfill anyway.
For myself, I have purchased a small compost bin and put the household recycling to our children's recycling bins.
I have tried talking to the managers, I contacted our local Council & was assured that they do recycle and have garden waste disposal facilities available.. After passing on this information and relative contact details, they still stick to the cost factor and do not believe the information.
Not wanting to harp & put the management offside I have left the matter for the time being. Other residents I have spoken with just accept the situation.
i would greatly appreciate any ideas or suggestions as I believe that we have an obligation towards the only planet we have and we are drowning it in waste.
