new, 'improved' system of bin collection just around the corner, my spies tell me that they're already struggling to cope with two wheelie bins per household, let alone the 4,583 bins we'll each have come November!
A reader from the grimy north of the island writes:
want to know what happened to our bin men this morning. Everyone's
bins were mixed up, are you seriously telling me a man can't take a
wheelie bin from a property, empty it, and then return it to where he
got it?!!!! Neighbours, including a lady pregnant with twins, have been
out trying to find their own bins up and down the street. Apparently
there are wide bins and skinny bins - who knew!?! I now possess a skinny
one which wasn't mine before they came, but I haven't been able to get
out and scour the neighbourhood for a
wide-that-I-thought-was-standard-size bin!!!! HMPH!
Well that doesn't really bode well for next month, does it? Let's hope the £2,482,245 The Duffers have spent on a fleet of 15 new bin lorries proves worth it!!
