A 94-year-old great-grandmother dragged her wheelie bin to a dump two miles away after getting tired of waiting for striking garbage workers to pick it up.
Nan Miller took matters into her own hands after industrial action by landfills made her wait three weeks for her yard waste to be picked up at her home.
She warned the heads of local authorities that if her green bin was not emptied by 3:30 pm, she would take it to the recycling center herself.
After no one showed up, he set out on a two-mile walk from his home in Holters Mill, near Canterbury, Kent, to the city’s Vauxhall Road recycling centre.
Before the hour-long march to the headland, he said: “If you think you can get away with it, I’ll show you you can’t.
“I am fed up with the back teeth, which are mine. My container needs to be emptied, so I’m going to push it to the edge myself.
“They think, ‘Oh well, it can wait.’ But sorry, I’ve stopped waiting.
“This is a real pain in the neck. And I have real pain in my neck, I’m not doing this just for fun.
“It will make me tense, of course, but my roots are in the north and we are a determined people, do not play with me.”
