CONGRATULATIONS to Warrington Borough Council for the tip most likely to deter recycling.

The award goes to Sandy Lane, Stockton Heath.

Their staff training on avoidance tactics is exemplary.

The avoidance of eye contact is perfect.

Why on earth does the furniture skip, which takes some of the heaviest waste, have the highest sides?

The two young employees were adept at ignoring this fact and although they found the discussion on their nights out fascinating, I can assure them that no-one else did.
