Recycling or Mocking

Western people produce too much rubbish, we are a consumer society and we’re leaving a trail of trash in our wake. Recycling is absolutely necessary and everybody agrees with this idea. Anyway, it’s not so new. Time ago, when I was a child, I remember poor people who went to my house to collect old newspapers and cardboard (also bottles and other things which my mother stored for them). Afterwards, they sold paper and glass to recycling factories and they earned some money. Now, recycling is much more “organized” and well, in my opinion, every day it is working worse.

First, official institutions started to say that recycling was so important as not leaving this in private hands. Afterwards, they started to publish rules and rules and to threaten with fines and fines. Finally, recycling is only a question of disturbing citizens and collecting fines by the Council Town, since recycling has been sub-contracted to private companies in most cases.

In Madrid (Spain), for example, we must separate the trash materials. That’s ok. In the streets, there are a yellow bin for plastics, a gray bin for organic waste, another for glass… However, this summer (I went to bed late), I saw how the yellow bin and the gray one were thrown together and mixed in the same garbage truck. Not surprise, because I’ve seen in more than one train station around the country some bins divided into three compartments (plastic, glass, organic waste) but if you put attention, everything finished in the same garbage bag.

Today, my kitchen is full of rubbish. A recent rule says plastics and cardboards will be collected only on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Last Friday was a holiday, and another rule says that the keeper of the home has no obligation to place the trashes in the streets on holydays (of course, there is another rule which forbids neighbors to place them, and another which threaten fines of up to 3000 euros if we leave garbage bags out of the bins, and another…, and another…). I hope tomorrow the keeper will place the bin (not if he is ill) because I cannot wait for other two days to throw so much rubbish.

If this continues, everybody will finish with Diogenes complex!

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
