Letter of the week: I am entitled to a good whinge over recycling charges and dog bans

It’s started already.

Within a week of recycling charges coming into force, half a dozen worn tyres have been dumped at North Gare car park.

Considerate fly tippers, they left their discarded junk next to a waste bin.

Eventually Hartlepool Borough Council will send out a vehicle to pick up these recyclables, at more expense, and drop them at Burn Road.

Did the powers-that-be not anticipate this situation would arise because everybody else did.

As I have reached my three score years and 10, I feel I am entitled to a good whinge.

Someone has decided to put up Dog Exclusion Area signs in areas where dogs are not excluded – Newburn Bridge and North Gare car park areas for instance.

People don’t always read the small print.

Rant over, I feel better now.

Enjoy the beach, responsible dog walkers.
