The council stole my bin. I had left it out for a couple of hours over the appointed time because I HAVE A LIFE and was not at home so they CONFISCATED it and charged my £60 for a replacement. I went a bit Daily Mail about that tbh
The council stole your bin? No way! how did you know it was them catgirl ?
Ironically I am the only person on this street who actually takes their bin back onto the property, the rest of them leave them out and I can never park outside my house where there is no bin to squeeze past and I park down the road and people have to rub against my car because of the bastard bins being left in the street except for today when mine has been stolen!
Nagini - I rang up to say it had been nicked and could I apply for a new one - and they said "oh - it was not within the boundary of your property the day after colleciton so we have confiscated it and you must pay for us to replace it - which by the way will take up to 2 weeks, during which time you will have no bin at all." FECKERS.
well I seem to have gained a recycling bin (well, green box actually but hey). It somehow ended up in my front garden last week. Definately only put 1 out in the morning but got home to find 2! So somebody in my street is probably cursing me the same way.
Maat I'm exactly the same, I can be usually found at the crack of dawn every Thursday Morning waking all my neighbours, dragging my wheelie bin down the several huge steps of my front garden. In my dressing gown. I try to do it as late as possible because sometimes the nice binmen take pity on me and do it for me!
Someone on youtube recently showed how easy it is to put cats in them so I thought I could sort out the neighbourhoods gang of crapping moggies. I'll pop it back in the morning. It might have 135 cats in though.
One of our neighbours has made off with our brown garden waste wheely bin. Dh put it out, and it had vanished by the time he got home, and he swears blind he's seen it round the back of their house. I have suggested that he simply knock on the door and suggest they took it by accident, and ask for it back, but he thinks nicking it back is a better idea - not that he has actually got round to implementing this fiendish plan, ohhhh no. So all our garden waste is going in the ordinary bin, and I have rung the council for a new one - and heaven alone knows when that will arrive.
