IT WAS INTERESTING to read in the Hull Daily Mail that the Hull City Council have discovered 4,000 tonnes of waste is dumped in Hull from people living outside the city and that they are to introduce a permit system to give Hull residents exclusive use of the city’s three recycling sites.
As Hull’s head of service for open spaces and waste said “they have had a review and altered the policy”. I therefore feel it is only right for members of the East Riding Council to carry out a review taking into account the facts, that all of Hull’s waste arrives through large tunnels at a Yorkshire Water site near Saltend, which is in the East Riding, not within the Hull boundary.
Therefore it would be prudent to issue residents of Hull with permits to allow, shall we say, four flushes per day and in the event, say over the weekend, if partaking of a kebab or curry, that they could apply for emergency flushes, failure to apply or comply to the policy would result in blockage of pipes , in more ways than one. In the event of total non-compliance to the system the flow will be reversed and waste pumped back to Hull where it initially came from.
