There are many ways to interpret this notice that has been sent out by Southend Borough Council’s recycling and waste contractor Veolia. 

One of our readers just sent this in. 

Perhaps one of the funniest and most worrying ways is that we should all be SPYING on Mr and Mrs Smith next door to make sure that their efforts don’t result in a whole lorry being sent to landfill. Ve have ways of making you talk! 

Best case scenario, we should all be giving neighbourly advice about recycling, but there are certain areas of Southend where this sort of activity will get you a punch in the face.
