Rubbish

Postby Wishy » Thu Feb 05, 2009 10:29 pm

We've been told by the hall that we will be charged for removal of rubbish on a per bag basis. (Previously, this was included in the cost of renting the hall)

Please could you help us keep this cost down at the lan:
:arrow: Seperate can and glass bottle bags / boxes will be provided. Please could you use these. We can then take them to the bottle bank.
:arrow: Crush down the plastic bottles you may have (Coke bottles, etc) - we don't want to pay to dispose of air!
:arrow: Crush down your ready meal boxes / any other cardboard boxes.

Thanks

If you mean the green bin outside, they'll probably work out its us. Thats the bin we're getting charged for using.

Just a note to add to this..

If you don't eat or drink the food you've bought, for fucksake, don't put the items in the bin. put them to one side and usually we have a nice collection for staff lunchboxes :)

The majority of rubbish that was binned were half-full bottles, pizzas and other food that was not opened. It weighs the bags down, and causes them to split. So - put all the unopened food items to one side and mention it to a staff member.
If online bullying has taught us anything. It's that people would sooner hang themselves than lose a bit of weight.

its stupid that buisnesses are charged by the council for rubbish disposial, and homes are not charged, as its included in council tax (i belive)

we are charged £35 per bin empty, including the rental of the bin and vat. its stupid

if carrier bags are used, they can be pushed into the bins around town... :roll:

people simply take a bag when they go to town and wedge it in a public bin tbh.

And who's going to pay to empty the bins around town? Oh hang on that would be the local council... The people we rent the hall from... I think we're insulting their intelligence suggesting they won't notice.

Please, can we stop discussing ways to "Dodgy" this - ultimately they've asked us to pay a reasonable expense. We're not going to do ourselves any favours trying to get around this - its a good hall, and its chuffing difficult to find a hall with everything you need for a lan (Size, Power, overnight stay allowed, parking, broadband).

All I'm asking is you make a little effort to avoid us paying a to dispose of a 2l bottle of air and help us recycle some bottles.
