A HOUSEHOLDER who was given a ticking off when he tried to recycle four computer monitors at the St Albans household waste site has questioned what else people are supposed to do.
Stan Lindemann took four monitors from two PCs he was disposing of to the site in St Albans Road, Sandridge.
When he put the third and fourth monitor on a pile which also contained TVs, he was told there was now a restriction of two monitors/TVs per household.
An angry Mr Lindemann has questioned if there is a serious policy for recycling and waste disposal in the district if people are being prevented from disposing of environmentally-hazardous items in a safe way.
A spokesperson for Herts County Council, which runs the household waste sites, said that the information had been given to Mr Lindemann in error for which they apologised.
He added: "For householders there has never been a policy about only taking two monitors but businesses can't.
