TTS employee suspended
« on: April 06, 2015, 06:08:18 PM »
A man took some furniture to bellozone for dumping which would then go to La Collette to burn for the incinerate to make steam for the power house.
Well 2 weeks later the man went to Glenco auctions and saw his furniture there up for auction, so he got in touch with TTS and they suspened the staff this weekend.
So private firms have been doing the work at La Collette all over the Easter period. The man denied that they took the furniture but they were shown the video tapes from the cameras and there they were putting furniture in to their cars.
How stupid do you have to be knowing that there are cameras all over the site and all staff were told from the very beginning not to take anything away from the site.

Lets re-cycle say the States, look at the monster environment department attached to the planning department. Look at the kerb recyciling rolled out at great expense.

But ask yourself this, the staff at the recycling sentre at Bellozane certainly did ? why chuck away perfectly good furniture and items that would be of use to another person ?

Greed simple greed and poor management.

If like many UK recycling centres,  there was a building with all those usefull items like wardrobes or maybe tables for resale ( perfect for a garden BBQ ) then the states would be losing out on us not buying brand new items and we must have our five percent GST. Its bad enough that there are second hand shops, and private auctions already. How about giving to hard working charity shops rather than burning everything its actually called a recycling centre. I noticed some kiddies bikes in quite good condition last time I called, dumped in the skip. Or maybe the staff recycled them ? giving some less well off famlies a chance to buy a little bike for song as apposed to the high prices that kids bikes seem to attract in shops.

The point is, yet again Jersey is behind the times and being hypocritical. I am not condoning the theft of used items that are going to burnt or possibly sold for scrap, but there is obviously a market and an opportunity to really re-cycle. Another opportunity the managers have missed, but the staff have obviously not.

Boatyboy.

Fact is. Jersey doesn't produce enough,"Fuel", to make this massively over-sized ,"Energy from wast",plant viable.
Suspending an employee for,"Recycling", perfectly good items is the thin end of a very big wedge.
How long before UK standard,"MOT,s", are introduced for three year old cars that are perfectly safe for Jersey roads?
What next. Is your furniture going to be checked to make sure its new enough not to be sent to the big fire?
Telly not big enough for today's standard?
Buy new when your told. Not when you want to,need to or can afford to, or be prosecuted.

The point is that the person  who dumped the furniture believed it was to be burnt. Now there is a container on site that is for         re-usable things can go in and you can take it away, no charge but for staff to take things for auction is another thing all together. They were told not to do such things, they could take it home for there own use just like the general public.
But they sole it for profit!

And what,exactly,is wrong with it being taken and sold on for profit?
It was dropped off to be incinerated. If the original owner wanted to sell it they could have taken it to the auction themselves. If they wished it to be re-used they could have donated it to a charity shop or put it in the bin you speak of.
I see no crime here, unless of course, the employee is suspended on full pay. Now that would be,"Criminal". >:(

You don't get it do you!    It was theft for profit by members of staff.  Remember they were told not to take anything from the site. That is a condition of work.  They were taking from their employer if you want to see it that way.
