An amusing typo?

In keeping with our new found fame as local satirists (see the front page of the Mercury from a few weeks ago) we thought we'd bring some amusement to Monday morning with a picture.

This is the sign at the new look, and very swanky, tip in Thamesmead. The typo was spotted and snapped although it's quite handy that it still "sort of" makes sense.

We think perhaps they meant to say "refuse and recycling" rather than "reuse and recycling" which is bit like saying the same thing twice.

Now, should we ring in sick and help keep the statistics looking bad?

perhaps the sign writer had a Greenwich education.. bless! perhaps the sign is even correct! head over to the greenwich website and see the picture in which cllr sidhu loads the mulch machine- a good laugh in itself-, he says...

"The Council encourages residents to re-use and recycle wherever possible."

The tag line they are referring to is Reduce, re-use, recycle - to find out how go to:

The council cannot help us reduce but it can help with re-use and recycling (which are different things)

In which case the typo is the missing hyphen.

Reduce, re-use, recycle that belongs to Bob the Builder, isn't that enlightening!
