Has anyone been puzzled by the fact that many of Ribble Valley Borough Council’s sacks for paper have holes in the bottom?
My last week’s sack, although looking new, had a huge hole in the bottom, which needed repairing before putting in anything, even an old Clitheroe Advertiser!
This week, I asked one of the paper collectors why so many had holes, and learnt it was because people overload their sacks and/or drag them over rough surfaces.
Some older folk may not be able to lift their sacks, but they are unlikely to be overfilling them and making them heavy; the rest of us should have no problems lifting them, should we?
RVBC is doing what it can to reduce unnecessary spending; isn’t it our responsibility to take better care of these sacks?
