A resident of Greenfields Place in Bootle made us aware of a problem some months ago but the email landed in our spam folder. After being made aware of the email we asked a local production company tech to try and get a video, so offered to send him around. What was finally captured is something often talked about with residents regarding the mixing of rubbish leading to questions as to why.
We've also seen many facebook users talking about the flies problem in bootle as its been bad for a while. We also all remember the huge dock fire with all the rubbish too.
For some reason the household waste and the recycling is mixed. In the beginning the bin men used to take 3 grey bins then 3 blue bins, then slip in another grey bin then top that off with the final blue bin. This used to occur on a monday morning.
Clearly this is then unsorted waste that needs sorting, not only does it make the residents look bad but it also causes a waste problem, such waste needing to be stored somewhere and that is where you have your first un-required expenditure. Once sorted out from waste to recycling then both batches clearly head off somewhere else, one lot for landfill and one lot for a recycling plant. At the first location is not only rent, insurance, utilities and varied wages.. there also sits waste that was already sorted by residents.
I assume at some stage this became a problem and "could" explain that dockland fire where a load of waste no one could dispose of was set on fire.. It certainly explains the flies regardless of the risk of mosquitoes breading and god knows what.. This creature for example..

Sefton Council have always seamed to pride its self in letting things slide as far as they possibly can, just so they can claim funding and keep them selves in work to fix the mess they cause. In this first video you see the Friday pick up "Household Waste" What they do is take in 3 bins of landfill waste (while a single bin of recycling is left to one side) After the 3rd GREY bin they then throw in a BLUE one, then they top that off with the 4th grey one.
I would assume that specific load goes back to the Landfill and is tipped out.. rejected, only to then have to be scooped back up and taken else where because it contains the recyclable stuff not accepted by a landfill right? <-- note the question mark.. I'm no councillor..
So this then sits wherever waiting to be separated and that is where your flies are breeding...
Now in the 2nd video, this is the Monday pick up where they come to take the "Recycling" and as per tradition they slide a wrong bin out on standby to pad out the load...
Now this probably gets tipped out at the recycling place and right away.. no ones insured to touch it as that's also hazardous waste within the recycling.. so off that goes to sit in the sun too..
Someone told them to do it like that, its to organised, its no accident dragging out that bin and leaving it sitting there.. call that a clear accusation regarding what ever laws you want. But the tax payers paying for this while the earth its self is polluted.
These tower blocks re-opened in 2010 and no longer used a bin chute due to recycling laws implemented. It would be interesting to get video footage of the pick ups in places like Crosby, Hell Manchester, London, lets see if the scam goes further than sefton. The flies "history" should be looked into, when the first bulk of reports came in, then who was in charge of the waste, where the waste has been. This is an ECO issue regardless of the scamming.

|One bin of Recycling before the last bin of Household Waste|

|Recycling on one wall and sign posted right along|
eco wise a lot of the damage has been done.. i mean people say the lady birds have been pushed out by the foreign ones right.. wrong.. they are being eaten by a vastly growing amount of bugs and creepy things clearly evolving in our waste.
A Few People maybe lazy in these buildings who don't recycle, but in all these years i have yet to open a blue bin and see a bin bag of mixed waste. People maybe lazy but there not actually callas.
And i got to ask, if recycling is law, who so long, why no letters, why has this been allowed to carry on unchecked. Money ???
New video up 25th took 2 this time...
Hope this is stopped soon....
The echo published a story here which states the council have started a new scheme "conveniently planned to start the day after the echo publish the article" where apparently people are not recycling so they are now taking the rubbish all together to be sorted at a 3rd location aside from the land fill and the dump.. what sheer bullshit.. residents should be fined for not recycling, we all know the rubbish has not been going the land fill for over a year and we know this mixing has been purposely done for over 9 months.. Fuck The Planet should be seftons motto and rob the fkn tax payer blind.
A new name for it seams to be "commingling"
ALSO... according to a spoksperson from ovh (not the council) Well we can only assume 100's of people on benefits will soon be working unpaid in commingling plants all over the country wich some people with jobs may think is fair.. it could well be if the treatment was fair AND they wern't still forced to try and find a job while traveling 2 hours in a morning & two hours in an eveing to get to an unpaid dangerous job in what could only be like a concentration camp with rejected traffic wardens and Tv license door knockers fired for not meeting a quota all running the place..
VERTEGEN was the last recycling place Enslaving people on benefits while the benefits service Still Harass people who had 4 hours to them selves to clean.. eat.. sleep and jobsearch and attend interviews... Welcome to vertegen.. a mandatory job so far away google maps says its on the fkn water.. all we know is that from where you live you'll be lucky to reach it, hard pressed to find it.. and if you don't.. wel all your benefits stop.. This whole "Outside Contractor" BS has to stop, council own most the fkn land.. stop renting it out, open plants, pay workers rather that lil contracted firms you all own fkn shares in...
What a fkn bunch of scammers!!!!!
