      Recycling nothing. Watch what happens when the council lads turn up – that lot will be shovelled into the bed of a pickup and dumped into land fill. This is nothing more than fly tipping.

      Recycling is putting them into the bottle bank.

      What has happened there is straightforward dumping.

      If the bin is full then don’t just let them on the pavement, that’s just being a knacker! What does the dumbass that put these on the footpath think is gonna happen? They’ll jump in through the hole in the next empty bottle bin that comes along?

    It’s laughable to think that because the banks are full it’s acceptable to leave them there. Bring them home with you or find another set instead of being a scumbag.

      These bottles were clearly not dumped by scumbags. Scumbags drink from cans and throw them into canals (when they┬┤re not protesting water charges) – this litter was left by the squeezed middle of Ireland.

        I can see Spar, Dunnes and Canadian Molson bags and boxes there. Not a Fresh, Donnybrrok Fair or M&S bag in site.

        These people only have middle class aspirations, but they’re just scummer litter bugs.

          My god you must think highly of your self. Your comments ooze of stupidity mixed with a little bit of bloated self worth.

        Your “squeezed middle” would do better to join your wouldbe scumbags on the protest rather than drinking themselves into oblivion. While I haven’t your uncannny ability to tell the difference between good upstanding citizens rubbish and that of dirty commoners, it remains rubbish. The main thing to take away from this is the woefully inadequate provision of recycling facilities in Irish cities.

      There’s a proper recycling centre five minutes up the road that could have taken all these. Plus you’ll get fined for littering for doing this. (If they can catch you)

    As a homebrewer i refill empty beer bottles with beer i have brewed myself – now thats recycling.

    One of the big earners for the councils are the fines for leaving behind the boxes when you are recycling bottles. Litter warden told me most of those banks have cameras on them.

      I can confirm that – Monkstown (Blue pool) recycling area is terrible for that. They never empty the bins and then find you 160 when you leave anything behind. Got my by my car reg!!

    I dunno if this has anything to do with it but…. 1) I live in the area and household recycling wasn’t collected last week and 2) there was a match on in the Aviva this weekend so it could well be either football enthusiasts having a few extra drinks or a drink stall trying to pull a fast one and use public recycling facilities instead of their own…

    If everyone smashed their bottles as they put them in we wouldn’t have this problem, as smashed bottle takes up probably a 5th the space, and you’d have a lot more fun. It’s tricky to do though, you need to fire the bottles in pretty hard and hit the pole in the middle. It would be great if there was a crushing device on each one. Place bottles in shute, then turn handle to crush.

      i used to do this, the bottle banks were outside the house of my nemesis – i would turn up at 6:30am on a Sunday and smashy smashy! he got the bottle banks moved.
