Considering you are supposed to clean them first I’m not sure why you would put the lid back on before disposing of it

I always remove the lid from water bottles and separate them before disposing of them - a few seconds lost
fu** cleaning them.
fu** taking the lids off.

Gives someone a job - lid removalist

Saw Daniel Andrews saying he wants to build recycling plants and we should be recycling our own rubbish.

FMD, I didn't know we weren't recycling our own rubbish until about 12 months ago.

It is pointless. The bottles that still have lids on get shipped off with the lids still on them. Nobody bothers to take them off.
I was told that they don’t sort contaminated recycling - it just goes straight to the tip

For a while I was using biodegradable garbage bags but apparently they don’t even bother emptying them they just send them to the tip

I do have to get better at it - now have 2 indoor bins to try and make it easier

My dad is a garbo and when I go out with him in the truck, I see pallets and pallets of the bottles waiting to be picked up and they all have the lids still on them.
Is your Dad an old school pick it up throw it in or does he sit in the drivers seat and use the arm? If he uses the arm, what is the minimum space requirements he needs between bins to pick it up?

Not that kind of garbo. He does the general waste bins at businesses. He drives a front lift truck.

Bloke at work works 7am-3pm and we get an hr lunch break. Gets back from a meeting at 1.20pm and takes his hour lunch break - surely just work 40mins and go home at 2pm? (yes we have flexible hours and can do that)
