Who is to blame for bottle mountains

So council chiefs believe that the Olympics and poor weather conditions could have contributed to a drop in visitors to Kirklees Museums (Guardian May 17).

I would also suggest that Kirklees’s decision to reduce opening hours and the introduction of charging visitors is also a factor.

Similarly the reason we are witnessing bottles piled up at bottle banks (Guardian May 10) is due to Kirklees Council’s decision to anadon its popular glass bottle collection service.

Do these people never learn?
