I was chasing up a recycling query and cleansing informed me that: 'the recycling bin collection in the north of the borough (that is Sefton speak for Southport/Formby) was running behind again by roughly a day.
The (alleged) reason for this is the increased amount of recycling in the north of the borough (see translation above) over the Christmas period is up 33% from 75 tonnes to 100 tonnes.
Because of this the wagons will be working on Saturday and if required Monday, but they will definitely be back to normal on Tuesday.'
I am a little puzzled by this response. Is there not always a spike in glass bottle recycling at Christmas? What the amounts collected last year?
