RECYCLING: Where are the caddies?

I recently received a notice outlining the days that recycling is picked up.

Friday, 6th May 2016, 6:00 am

At the bottom it stated that glass will only be taken if it is in the correct bottle caddy, the one that was supplied with the green recycling bin.

The problem is, my bottle caddy mysteriously disappeared some months ago, as did the one at a previous address, and the one at the address before that. Actually, every single bottle caddy I’ve had over the years has disappeared.

I have had to use a succession of buckets, bags and crates to recycle my glassware, and a spot check of every recycling bin in my back lane tells the same story – not a single one has a bottle caddy in it.

What has happened to them all? Can anyone shed any light on this?
