Put the bin out as usual this morning, as has everyone else in the road. Its "Green" bin day today, and all the bins in the road are green.

Heard the bin lorry before, saw the bin men come down the road, saw the bin lorry backing down the road, but no bins have been emptied think

I hope they may have been looking for the brown bins and that the Greens will get done later today, otherwise thats another 2 weeks before they get done.

Its just confused me as to why the bin lorry actually backed down the road and no bins got emptied think

What do you do if you are colour blind? Ours are the brownies tomorrow but noticed the flats behind have their green and black bins out. Somehow I think it's all going to end in tears.

life waa so simple when the bin was a galvo one and was full of dints from where it got battered by been dropped off the binmans shoulder onto the edge of the bin wagon. It got emptyed EVERY WEEK WITH OUT FAIL. Then again that was before where where PART of the EU and where able to do things are own way, be it right or wrong.

de gaulle was right then, let the British have their own bins.
I wondered why he kept us out so long.
