DOES A GLASS RECYCLING CENTRE DEVALUE YOUR PROPERTY???

Caroline from Feilding

Dear Neighbors I would be interested to know whether you think having a property next to a recycling center would devalue your property? Glass recycling bins were placed next to my boundary fence which terrified my livestock. Mayor Helen Worboys response to my complaint was "Well no one wants to have a recycling center next to them". I now have to wear earmuffs when outside due to the glass breaking several times a day (even on xmas day). Then there is the truck that is there for an hour with hydraulics banging the bins that collect the cardboard etc. It has caused me much distress and greatly affected my quality of life. So please neighbors what do you think? Would you want to live next to this and if you did purchase land next to a recycling center would you want it for cheap? Thanks
