I really value Dova's contribution over the years at the Recycling Centre, and don't want to diminish that, but she has gone over the top in dispensing blame in her "Black Thursday" post which saw her withdrawing the convenience of the freezers at the gate of the Recycling Center.

On Wednesday, November 23rd, we did the circuit, with our one bag of garbage - a 30+ kilometre round trip. When we got to the dump we found the freezers outside the gate full with electronic components stacked on one of them.
Not wanting to leave without disposing of our bag, we put it in the left hand freezer (although it was partially open) with a rock on top to protect it from the ravens. We have no idea of who the perpetrators of this gross mess were, but we object to Dova's posting our names on the Cortes' Recycling Centre facebook page as its perpetrators, via the link to the Cortes Recycling Centre facebook page in her article.

The accusations are unfounded and those that know me understand that I am more than committed to the environment and a sustainable future, despite her unfounded accusations.
