    Default Bin Laiden



    Yet another Council bin turned up the other day...

    Brown Bin - Garden waste
    Green Bin - Household Recycling
    Grey Bin - Household waste

    Get this.... they wont take your recycling bin if the plastic isnt removed from old window envelopes !!

    and they wont take ANY of your bins if the lid isnt 100% shut tight

    and if you dont get it right... they have legal powers to hang you



    (but its ok for teenage kids to deal crack at the end of the road)

    Maybe the council will give you a bin for them too?

    - not suprisingly the 'fly tipping' has already started on the roadsides....

    Yep we get the same treatment, however keep phoning the council if they dont take the bin, just remove the offending item before they come back. They send out the same waste lorry later in the day, and trust me the blokes get hacked off coming back so end up just taking your bins.

    It got so bad with me I was on the phone to the council before the lorry had left the road some mornings (good of em to put phone number on lorry) They were refusing to take bins because a twig was sticking out! got stupid so I thought 2 can play that game.

    Trust me constantly complain, all calls are logged and it soon becomes hassle for them.

    I would LOVE to know what guidelines and rules the binmen had to follow... They sometimes leave a right mess behind them in the street.... bits of rubbish left behind on the road...

    yep we have had them for nearly three years and you can't put plastic in the plastic bin if its had raw meat in it - even if you wash it!

    you cant put glass in the recyling bin - nearest glass bins are 20+ miles away lol !!!


    and even had a stand up argument when they refused to take recyling bin because it had one of my sons plastic toys in it - because it was'nt recylable even though it HAD the recylcing logo stamped all over it!

    will the last person to leave the country please turn off the light !!

    So.... If 'someone' went round and placed a stick in ALL the bins in the street, forcing the lid ajar... the binmen would drive around and drive off without emptying one single bin... oooo there's another trick for bored kids on the way to school...



    What happened to common sense.... please step forward !!
