I don’t know if I find this sad or stupid. At least once a month, someone has a beer fest at the bus stop at Glasnevin cemetery on the Finglas Road. Party Boy then recaps the bottles and puts them back in the packaging usually neater than today. He then gently places everything beside the bin also at the bus stop.

Mmf.

    why would you even care?
    maybe it’s some aul lad who lost his wife and goes to the cemetery for the day or something and has a few drinks while reminiscing and tidies up after himself.

    “person leaves litter beside bin” and your thought is to take a fuppin photo of it and post it in to broadsheet passing comment? really just sums up the age we live in.

      Exactly what Ciaran said. Plus, in a lot of European countries people tend to leave glass bottles beside bins to benefit those less fortunate that collect and trade glass bottles for money.

            I can understand that the milk bottle system worked because of regular collections. I don’t know why the deposit system for other bottles was stopped unless there was a dispute on costs to individual traders.

            This has long pissed me off. Glass bottles are never reused so when you buy a beer you pay for the bottle as well. Why cant you fill up a bottle at your offy from a keg, and only pay for the beer itself? Or water, milk, coke, whatever?

            You can. A few SuperValus are doing growler fills for instance. Most of the craft beer bars in Dublin will also fill a growler for you too.

    i dont see the problem. someone has beers and tidily disposes of the empties. sad or stupid? neither. id say responsible.

    Ciaran – it’s a bit like getting all worked up about a random post on BS really.What is the world coming to?

    Drinking in widowhood and littering are not the issues. Getting Ciarans all riled with righteous indignation is fun.

      Sorry C, but as far as I can see, Ciaran doesn’t give a fupp what you think.
      Ciaran cares about what’s right.

      And, may I add, Ciaran is right.

    Just a thought..
    What if they didn’t want to put the glass in the bag because it woukd rip on the person changing it? Perhaps they thought as glass is recyclable it shouldn’t be going in with normal waste? Are there bottle banks nearby?
