I know they charge for the green one but the grey was free as was the brown.
I'm sure they got this out of us or a european grant. I cant see a council paying for all our bins.
Why is it acceptable for the bin men to put the bins back a house away from where you left it for pick up ? Who decided that's ok? The point I'm getting across is that years ago when bin men came around the back of your house picked up your metal bin they brought it right around the back again. They never went missing !
If we are to report bins missing then isn't it fair to say if they don't put it back where they picked it up from its now there fault and not ours.
Personally I think there should be a department to look into these claims properly and not as its been suggested its our fault ! People work, people dont get home until all hours and if the bin men have not returned it in a tidy manner its going to get moved by Jo public and then away by the kids.
When i put my bin out i put it towards the wall with the handle accessible easily for the bin men. They leave mine in the middle of the pavement and no where near where i left it.
There are rules for !
Dogs crapping on pavements.
Cars parked on pavements.
Bins left out longer than necessary on pavements.
Is there a law the bin men must abide by or is it best effort ?
If its going to cost me £37 to replace a bin, it should be more than best effort.
I would love to find a loop hole if this happened to me.
I would paint my old brown bin green in principle of not paying £37 its the same shape, I could claim colour blindness.
