Magic idea

SIR, — While staying in Dorset for a few months last year I found that they have an excellent food waste disposal system — clean and non-smelling. What is this magic idea? They issue every house with a small brown caddie and two rolls of compostible bags.

SIR, - While staying in Dorset for a few months last year I found that they have an excellent food waste disposal system - clean and non-smelling. What is this magic idea? They issue every house with a small brown caddie and two rolls of compostible bags. This brown caddie is stored in the kitchen where food waste - cooked and uncooked - is placed. You tie up the bag and place it in the main wheelie bin that is collected weekly. Everyone is delighted to comply as it requires no effort, no smell and no mess.

How about it St Albans district councillors? It would save an awful lot of trouble and no rats or foxes can get to them. Also, which is more important as Mr Stewart Rose indicated in his letter last week, no maggots.

Let's have a bit of commonsense about this. No-one minds recycling but it must be done properly. If the district council want more information on this, I'm sure Wimborne Council officers in Dorset would be only too happy to oblige.
