I live in the centre of town in a Victorian town house. We have a front garden (for want of a better word) the width of the house and about 4ft deep.
The only way through to our back garden (courtyard the width of the house and about 20ft long the same as ALL the others). is through the house.
We used to have to find space for just one HUGE wheelie bin that was collected weekly, now we have two, AND two recycling boxes which are collected every two weeks on alternate weeks.! The second wheelie bin is for garden rubbish only.......for the irony of this see above.
That's not the best bit though.
They can't get their truck down our road so we have to take all this crap down the street and leave it on the corner for them to collect. Which, if not bad enough, means that if your not there on the right day to do it, you don't get the bin emptied for a MONTH! You can imagine the flies at this time of year.
Now they want to weigh it. I suppose I'm gonna have to do that for them too and bloody pay for the privilege, it's taking the piss.
Oh, and they don't recycle plastics......what the f@@K!!
