image for Council Proud of Recycling Excesses

A survey commissioned by the Taxpayers Alliance has revealed major variations in the amount of recycling councils are undertaking in the U.K.

While the survey indicates that the average number of containers councils ask their residents to sort their rubbish into is 4, at least one council has owned up to providing anything up to 9.

Westminster council chief executive Roland Ponsonby-Smythe was unapologetic when asked to explain this apparent excessive recycling of household waste :

"As over 90% of the council tax payers in our purview fall into the top 1% of salary earners in the country, chief officers of Westminster Council took a conscious decision that we would provide the optimum level of recycling options.

We feel it is incumbent upon ourselves as the democratically elected representatives of such a privileged client group that the quantity of recycling receptacles on offer accurately reflect the many varied strands of their daily life.

Accordingly and albeitnotwithstandingly, the repositories made available provide a safe haven for - broadsheets, discarded alpaca fur wraps, uneaten venison, fractured polo mallets, cheek implant detritus, leer jet memorabilia, 2010's Burke's Peerage,
nannies private documentation and last, but indisputably not least, old task discs for the lamborghini reventon.

Such a comprehensive servicing of our clients recycling needs is the very least they expect and deserve."

Make grimbo's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
