A Rubbish Decision.

In Singapore our garbage was collected daily. Result - Not much litter, no bad smells, control of vermin and insects and a clean, tidy city in which to live.

Monday morning in Exmouth, before our once-a-week garbage collection. Bins are overflowing. Refuse sacks have been opened by seagulls and foxes. Litter is everywhere and wastepaper drifts like "tumbleweed" on the wind. Britain is grubby and unclean. Our standards are low.

Fear not - plans are afoot. The Local Authority, (with Government connivance,) are considering reducing the collection of garbage to once every two weeks. This is despite the fact that Council Tax has been raised again to cover the cost of services. We lack the political will to organize things efficiently, but we like to shout "Progress!" while we retrogress.
