Dustmen refused to collect a full recycling bin from a couple’s house because it was ‘contaminated’ by six food pips.

Mr Sylvester, 54, said the bin contained no food except for six small pips sitting on a pizza box.
‘I was outraged they refused to make our recycled rubbish because of six pips, it was pathetic,’ he said.
The window fitter said the pips must have been put in the bin by a passerby.
