Bin men told not to ask for Christmas tip

Nicosia Municipality warned on Friday that it had given clear instructions to rubbish collectors not to ask homeowners for a Christmas tip.

The municipality said that although the practice has diminished in recent years, it had not totally disappeared. It was not right to put cash-strapped homeowners under pressure to pay a tip.

Also the municipality said there were scam artists pretending to be working for the municipality in order to trick people into giving them money.

“The public is urged, if they receive any such visits, to refuse to give a tip and to let the collectors know they are violating a staff circular,” the municipality said.
