I AM writing in disbelief at the way May Gurney is operating the council’s new recycling scheme.

June 21 was the first day that I have had my recycling containers emptied by the new procedure and I was appalled by the way the operators had to empty the containers.

They are expected to empty each receptacle by hand – and it was noted that they had to put their hands in the green box to remove all paper and glass, although each operator was wearing gloves it only takes a piece of broken glass to cause major injuries.

Where are the risk assessments and who is responsible for health and safety?
