Recycle crew rubbish at road safety

RECYCLING workers have been snapped parking their vehicle on a pavement and zig-zag lines – outside an off licence.

A passer-by photographed the vehicle in Edinburgh as the apparently thirsty workers made a pit stop.

While the crew may have been doing their bit for the environment, it seems they’re rubbish at road safety, blocking the path and obstructing the view of a pedestrian crossing.


According to Edinburgh’s Worst Drivers, the website which posted the snap, van was caught on Newcraighall Road last Thursday afternoon.

An Edinburgh council spokesman said: “The vehicle in question belongs to our recycling collection sub-contractor.

“Although not a council vehicle we expect the same high driving standards from our contractors as we do our own staff.

“We will be raising this incident with our contractor and reminding them of the importance of safe driving and strict adherence to the highway code.”
