We make the rubbish

PEOPLE moan all the time or perhaps it's because moaners write too regularly to your paper while the rest of us just get on with our lives. Anyhow I wish to say how good something is that the council is doing for a change. The dustmen are not to be blamed. They do a good job and if by putting our bags by the front of our homes it helps them to be more efficient then I'm all for it.I don't understand some of your writers and I don't know where they lived but in my former home we've been putting bins at the front for years and nobody complains. We're the people who make the rubbish and we can't blame the council for that. We live in a throwaway world and have just got to learn to make less rubbish.MRS MADGE APPLETON - Lower Bristol Road, Weston
