Plastic bags left at the door to be filled

Filed under: Moans — malwen @ 6:32 pm

Where I live, we often get large plastic bags from charities (and possibly other organisations trying to look like them) with a request to fill and leave out for collection. Almost invariably, I have nothing I want to put in so I leave the bag outside to be collected and reused. No-one has ever taken an unfilled bag away to re-use, which seems very wasteful.

While one unused bag or more lies on the step, others are still delivered, sometimes from the same organisation.

My sympathy has been eroded away. I am fed up with them and have resolved that I shall now leave the unused bag for a few days so they can recycle if they will. Then I will use it myself for cat litter disposal.
