I WISH to support Annette Foan of Exford Close in her view that 'totting' should continue (letters and article, Mercury January 19).Rather than terminating the 'goodwill recycling' by the employees, the local authority should be pleased items are being reused and not contributing to landfill.Are we supposed to be green thinking or are we not?As for the council stating it is a health and safety issue, please, councillors, don't insult the intelligence of the electorate. People are not stupid and realise they buy items at their own risk and from an actual rubbish centre.I suspect hardly any electrical items are bought. It is mainly household/leisure or garden equipment that is rescued.How much more of a traditional way of life and how many more of our freedoms are going to be taken away in the name of health and safety?NAME AND ADDRESS SUPPLIED
