Mikeyboy, I would have thought that if it was a chat forum it would then be called a chat forum. It's not, it's called a forum but I can't think why. Perhaps you can tell me?

Not sure what you mean George.

 

It is up to the OP to define what their thread is about and normally that is respected. Your points had already been made on another thread. Hadn't they? The OP started this particular thread to discuss how we could all support each other while recycling.

A forum is a place, situation or group in which people exchange ideas and discuss issues, especially important public ones.

 

That does not include demanding that other people agree with you, or insist that only people that agree with you can comment on your thread. Of course Mikeyboy, each to their own.

You have an issue with me using the word chat for some reason. Do you approve off discussion forum?

Mikeyboy, I approve of all types of forum. It is somewhere that people can talk about the relevent subject and put their own views forward. That does not mean that I, or anybody else for that matter, has to agree with the idea or belief put forward. If I think otherwise then I have the right to express my thought, it's part of the discussion and without it the discussion does not exist. All that happens then is that the group sits down and agrees with each other while pandering happily. If I can't comment on what has been stated, then what is the point of being there? If I disagree, have I got to remain silent? If so, make all the statements you like, I'll be gone. I will leave a comment for the mods on the way out the door, of course. Then they can sort out the problem.

 

Having said that, I despise being told to agree with somebody else's views or beliefs. That's just like being told to be a communist, whether you like it or not, or they'll hang you. That's what we are being told here.

Everything we create has to be created from something already on this planet, we may change its structure, but we cant fashion something from nothing.

George for the second time nobody is telling you you have to agree with anything. Again where have I said that?

 

You had an issue with me calling this a chat forum, is discussion forum better. Because it clearly says that on this page.

Mikeyboy, it's a forum. Call it chat, call it discussion, call it whatever you like but it's still a forum. Being a forum means that I can have my own views and when you or somebody else puts something forward that I disagree with I can be honest and put forward my view regarding the relevent subject. On this thread that has not been allowed or found acceptable - from day one. Some forum that's being inflicted upon us - as long as you accept that you have to agree, regardless.

Who's going to recycle the black bags and how long will it take, playlist? A year, a century or a few millenia, if at all?

The Council says that.  Your rubbish will be left, fact.  Read about it, do a little investigation of your own, instead of relying on anonymous trolls on Shetlink for your information.

As usual, the older generation are the cynics, while the younger generation are at least trying.  Ironically to save the planet from the older generations sharn.

^Faq's say your bins will be checked to see if correct waste is placed in them. Black bags presented in usual way but fortnightly are for non-recyclable waste, but nothing there stating they will be untied and also inspected, so recyclable stuff could get in the bags. Not withstanding other criticisms of the scheme, I would find it disappointing that waste might not be more fully separated at source and enforced. It leaves room for errors. If we are going to do it then do it properly in my opinion.

Borderhole24 - where did you get that information, I cannot see that they will not collect your black bags full of whatever is put in it, they will have to open every one and waste their time, like they are going to do with clipping and unclipping refuse bins to put back the way they find them if you have room to have all thee bins safely so don't run away, don't think there are many people who do, taking more time to do the rounds.  Will wait and see if they open black bags as you appear to state that they will, cannot see that this is stated by Council or anyone but yourself.

 

George it is taking it a bit far to not have black bags, although I know they take years to decompost completely and so really with recycling they probably should, really need the black bags here re bin boxes blowing into whatever and causing damage and so who really can safely have all these bins I really don't know and so think black bags are the way to go or give out bags to put the recycling stuff in, would be better so refuse bins not causing damage and not waste so much recycling workers time I would have though, obviously not thought with the system of plastic bins.  I agree that you should be able to say what you wish George, although on Shetlink some people just argue the toss on certain others and wish things their own way.
