Garbage collectors have been refusing to pick up the PMC bags of this Belgian for three weeks because they are not properly closed: “How should I do? I only have one arm…”

It has been three weeks since the PMC bags of Odiel Vincken, a resident of Zonhoven, have not been picked up when Limburg.net garbage collectors pass by. Why ? Because these are, according to them, not closed well enough. As a result, Odiel finds his bag each time with a small red sticker stuck on, mentioning the rules to be respected.

The problem is that for Odiel, tightly closing a PMC bag is not easy. In fact, he only has one arm. ” How should I do ? With my mouth? “, he wonders in the columns of the Nieuwsblad. “When it’s my classic garbage bag, someone helps me, but for the PMCs, I try to get out of it alone”.

Last week, he even waited for the garbage collectors to come and tell them about his problem. But when he puts his bag in front of his house, it is never picked up. “I don’t blame them for anything. They do their job and have rules to follow… but they could be a little more humane. Otherwise I would have to ask a neighbor or relative to come by each time to tie a knot…”.

A spokeswoman for Limburg.net explained to the Nieuwsblad that contact has been made with Mr. Vincken and that a solution will be found.
