“Please wash your bottles, remove all caps and lids and FLATTEN them when possible”
Are they serious? Flattening clear glass bottles? I wish I had brought my hammer!
I understand the idea behind recycling, but I cannot fathom the rest of it all. For a start, these bins are an eye-sore. The public seem to use them to recycle glass, but they then leave their plastic bags and boxes everywhere — what a mess. Throwing bottles in is noisy, it is dirty and inaccessible.
On top of all that, some bins are for all glass — regardless of colour! I have never seen anyone wash off the labels and remove caps — I do wonder what happens to it when it is so contaminated. Is it all just an elaborate hoax or something?
