- I have to admit that we were somewhat surprised that the eight former employees were affected. We are always surprised, if an employee is affected during a check-up. But the eight-man is of course deeply regrettable, states Line Meldgaard to Ekstra Bladet.
Line Meldgaard says that the company ten years ago, the on-the-spot alcohol and drugs-check to enhance the security of the company.
- Many of our employees drive the around on the roads in great cars. And it would be terrible if an intoxicated driver came to run a child down.
But it is, in fact, not only the bin men, which is being checked. It applies to all employees - including those at the offices. People are being briefed on our alcohol policy when they are hired. They also get to know that we want to help them, if they have an alcohol problem. But if they are harvested in a check, so there's nothing to do. So you expelled on the spot, saying the Line Meldgaard.

They know our alcohol policy, says the director.
the bin men are organized at 3F. Here, the states group chairman Svend-Åge Hansen of the Vejle Amts Folkeblad, that the fundamental is not in order to run, if you are affected.
- If it is proven that they have done it, is the banning perfectly fine, if you ask me. I can't vouch for, that there is someone in the transport industry at all, running the affected around, he says to Vejle Amts Folkeblad.
