Think of people with lung and respiratory issues before burning
As we stay home and self-isolate for the good of others and ourselves, we keep occupied with chores and hobbies. However, for those people who decide to burn their garden waste and garbage, outside or in their fireplaces, on a daily basis, I have an urgent plea. Please think of neighbours, like me, who suffer from allergies, asthma or other lung issues which can cause severe respiratory distress. I would like to be able to open my windows, on a sunny day, to let in fresh air, or be able to walk around my garden for exercise. I have not been able to do this. Please put your waste in the green bin provided and recycle all you can, including plastics.
