We all know what happens when we let the rubbish stack up in the house. After a while things become pretty smelly. It is really important to take it out and dispose of it properly. What is true for the house (or the kid’s bedroom) is also true for the town or city we live in.

A significant part of our local council time and rates goes to the provision of waste removal, it helps us to live in a hygienic and healthy environment but before the days of modern waste management processes the city waste was taken outside the walls and dumped or buried. They did this through the Refuse Gate.

We need to take the rubbish out of our lives just the same way. The Refuse Gate needs to be kept in good order – how’s yours?
