Trip to the tip is twice the time; YourSay.

DURING the first few months of this year I have been using the waste disposal plant at Whitley.

This was to dispose of domestic waste that the bin collection will not take.

On two or three occasions I drove to the site, put my rubbish in the named skip, and returned home no problem - the whole job taking about 30 minutes.

Twice in the last two weeks I have again been to the re-organised super efficient re-cycling site at Whitley.

On both occasions I have had to stand in line from the London Road entrance, and on both occasions it has taken over half an hour to get to the tipping point.

I never counted but I would estimate a total of 50 vehicles in the line with engines running for a total of 30 minutes.

On returning home the whole job took 1 hour 15 minutes.

My point is that if the other 49 vehicles were on the road for the same amount of time, is the carbon emissions from the vehicles cancelling out the savings made by recycling? Also why has the re-organisation of the site doubled the time it takes to dispose of a boot load of unwanted rubbish? Kenneth Giles, Mount Nod, Coventry..
