One black recycle box!
Last seen this morning on the drive, filled with empty bottles, cans and paper!
Went out this afternoon to bring it in and it had completely disappeared. Everyone elses was still on their drives and I went and checked to make sure it hadn't wandered off, but no, mine had gone, puff!!!!!
Checked all ditches, nothing!
The girls want to put up 'LOST' signs, reward waiting, but we couldn't as I don't have a photo of it!!!
When I phoned the council and asked them what they had done with it, they said it must have been stolen!!!!!
STOLEN!!!! Where I live! Don't be daft!!! Who would travel 6 miles out to the country to steal a recycle box!???????
But they insisted!!!
So we thought, could this be a possiblility? Ours was the only drive with no car on it this morning, the 2nd car was across the road! So it would look like we where out! Surely not???? Why would someone steal a recycle box????
I saw the Recycle lorry pull up, it usually stops right outside mine, but this morning it didn't it was further down the road!
The hunt was round here as well this morning, it was huge, I haven't ever seen one round our fields this large for a long time, could it be one of them, or maybe a protester. Why, what would you use a black box for? Washing Wellies?? Not that I think there where any protesters as we had to pass the hunt, when we went to collect T from college!
If it was stolen, then this is I believe a serious worry. I always considered myself the local neighbourhood watcher, well I think I have failed miserably.
