A ROSYTH man hit out at Currys PC World after packaging from his delivery was dumped in the countryside. 

Retired dockyard worker Martin Flynn, 66, of Burnside Crescent, only found out when Fife Council officers told him rubbish with his address details on it had been fly-tipped.

He told the Press: “They wouldn’t say where it was dumped and it wasn’t just my packaging, there was stuff with other addresses on them too. 

“I just think it’s terrible, a big company like that spoiling the countryside.”

Mr Flynn explained: “I ordered a cooker and freezer from the Currys store in Dunfermline and they came last Tuesday morning. They were unpacked and the guy took the packaging away. 

“Two days later, I had two representatives from Fife Council come to my door to ask if I’d recently had a delivery from the company as the cardboard packaging with my address on it had been fly-tipped.” 

He continued: “It’s really annoying when a big company like that doesn’t recycle and just dumps their rubbish.

“We separate everything and I’m a keen gardener so we always make sure everything goes in the right bin. 

“I took the old freezer down to the Dalgety Bay recycling centre; one of the boys down there was good enough to help me with it, and I’ve got my old cooker ready to go too.”

Mr Flynn said he had complained to the company and they had told him deliveries were contracted out. 

He added: “The woman I spoke to at Currys was very good and said they’d investigate. 

“You’ve got to think about the wildlife. The countryside is for everyone and my wife, Jackie, gets upset with this kind of thing as she loves animals.” 

A Currys PC World spokesperson said: “This absolutely shouldn’t have happened and we are investigating this as a matter of urgency with our franchisee driver. 

“Our policy is for our delivery drivers to return all packaging to our distribution centre for recycling and any colleague who doesn’t follow these procedures will be faced with disciplinary action. As a gesture of goodwill to Mr Flynn for his experience and inconvenience caused, we have offered an in-store voucher, which he has accepted.”
