It’s Not Easy Being Green

, , , , , | Friendly | August 7, 2021

I’m checking out the new green waste wheelie bins that were delivered to our complex last week when a neighbour comes up and joins me. I read a note stuck on the top of the wheelie-bin.

Me: “It says, ‘For green waste only,’ and there’s a list of what is not to be put into it.”

My neighbour chimes in brightly, going off on a tangent.

Neighbour: “I put my woven bags into the green waste bin to get rid of them when they are worn out.”

I proceed hesitantly, not sure what to say and not wishing to start an argument.

Me: “The bin is only intended for green waste.”

Neighbour: *Cheerfully* “Oh! That’s all right, then! I only put the green bags in the bin, not the other colours.”
