Title: Bins for Jane (and everyone else!)
Post by: Chris S on July 09, 2011, 08:07:08 pm
Is there a Bin?

YES!

Where it all began - on the Tan Hill ride:

Bins: the choice of audaxers who consider bus shelters the 'soft' option?

If they are as artistically arranged as the array in the last picture, I for one would be fascinated. As long as the lid is left firmly closed.

Some dog bins are sponsored.  A few round here are sponsored by the makers of Drontal worming tablets, which makes some kind of sense, and I suppose Febreze might want to get in on the act.  Maybe not the local curry house though.  Especially if they sell sheek kebabs.

Like so many threads on YACF - it's an In Joke. You know - someone says something banal, and about 50 people respond with "FUCK YEAH" and "Damn Right!" and you are left thinking "WTF?" but daren't say anything lest you look A Chump?

Well. You had to be there. On the Tan Hill ride, we waited in Topcliffe for Wowbagger to fix a puncture, and Jane - somewhat punch-drunk from the start, was looking for a bin. She was most animated about finding a bin - oblivious to the fact there was such a device next to the bench she was sitting on.

Thereafter that night - any cry of "Is there a bin?" caused maximum hilarity to ensue. Like I said - you had to be there.

A friend of mine has a professional interest - he drives a bin lorry.

When on holiday, he makes it a point of principle to have his photo taken next to the local equivalent of a wheelie bin.  Just so that he can show his work colleagues that he's still thinking about work.

Now if Kim can find a way to get a picture of a cat, bin, bridge, and narwhal simultaneously, then she'll pretty much have covered most areas of interest.

If she really wanted to be adventurous, she get a shot of a bicycle in with all of those as well, but that might be getting silly. ;D

I reckon we can hack about with the famous "Think Your (sic) Having a Bad Day?" shark/helicopter/Golden Gate image to get there.  Just make the diver into a cat, the helicopter into a flying wheelie bin and the shark into a YEAAAHHH AINT NO HOOVES ON THAT narwhal.

No photo, only a memory. There is a town in central Poland called Kielce, whose bus station is an odd shape like a flattened sphere with a roof made of concrete with circular, glass windows. Locals call it "the UFO". And in this bus station are bins shaped like penguins.

On North Weald airfield, next to the hangar in which they used to film "The Crystal Maze", is a mahoosive collection of wheelie and recycling bins.  Unfortunately I can't get a picture coz I'm doing 60 mph when I pass them.

This place (https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=Kielce+bus+station,+poland&hl=en&ll=50.874932,20.620437&spn=0.008232,0.045447&sll=51.528642,-0.101599&sspn=0.573272,1.454315&hq=Kielce+bus+station,+poland&radius=15000&t=m&z=15&layer=c&cbll=50.874929,20.620449&panoid=6GmdaP1T1BO3GBN3aVbY0A&cbp=12,41.5,,1,-4.8) ?  I can't see to get any closer to it, or find any bins however.
Title: Re: Bins for Jane (and everyone else!)
Post by: Cudzoziemiec on May 21, 2013, 06:08:15 pm
That's it. The bins are, or were, inside the bus station itself.

I didn't know streetview had arrived in Poland - I'll have to have a play! Haven't been to Kielce for many years, it looks more of a building site than I remember, but every bit as messy and dirty.  ::-)

I've always found the concept of litter bins something of an oxymoron.  Surely once you put rubbish in a bin it ceases to be litter, assuming it ever was...

Doubly so in the case of "Put litter in its place" signs.  That'll be the ground, then?   :facepalm:


(This is the sort of internal pedantry that I usually keep quiet about.  But this is a thread full of bin photos...)

A few minutes spare and a cameraphone, so I went chasing the bin in front of the Caird Hall. Tried lots of compositions but this was my favourite.

Saw one of those in York last year.  Thought it was a dalek.

The technology isn't absurd in a world where it's more expensive to empty bins than to make solar-powered miniature compactors.  Given that emptying bins involves employing binmen, that seems entirely plausible.
Title: Re: Bins for Jane (and everyone else!)
Post by: Chris S on September 26, 2013, 08:48:04 pm
Solar powered bins have been popping up all over Oxford for the last few months. I was quite curious as to why a bin should need solar power, but according to their website [http://www.bigbellysolar.co.uk/ (http://www.bigbellysolar.co.uk/)] it has a compactor so it doesn't need to be emptied as often and has some sort of fancy telemetry that tells the head office when it needs emptying. This strikes me, slightly, as an absurd use of technology, but I suppose our cash-strapped local authority has got to justify its Council Tax bill somehow. I wonder how long the solar bins'll last before they revert to being, well, just bins?

Hmm... I suppose if the authority hasn't got the Honest Frontery to just say "Our Council tax bill is so high because of the astronomically expensive Pension Bill we have to cover. In fact, in the next twenty years or so, that's ALL we'll be able to afford - because so many of our employees are "retiring" at 50 and we're so unbelievably generous that we happily give them their pensions early."

A blurry photo of just some of the many thousands of bins that guard the lay-bys of the A34.  Either someone's got some credible research evidence of the meagre distance the average driver is willing to walk to properly dispose of litter, or there's some sort of sinister bin-based conspiracy afoot.

This orphaned BIN took up residence at Larrington Towers a few weeks ago.  When he first arrived he was clearly drunk, and lying in a heap, but he has sobered up now.  I've run his fingerprints and DNA through The Database, but no hits :(

<kim> i suppose that's one way to stop people nicking your wheelie bin


Has anyone ever actually had their wheelie bin nicked?

Our recycling didn't get collected last week, presumably because someone in the building had filled the wrong recycling bin with cardboard boxes. After having to do a wheelie bin contents swap manoeuvre, I decided it was probably time I found a round tuit for labelling what the green and the blue bins are for. (It's really hard to tell them apart in the dark.)

The Woman Who Lives Downstairs has a different view on these sorts of things - she insists all of the bins stay corralled behind a section of fencing in order to prevent them being stolen, and she also requested I put the building number on them, for similar reasons. Helpful comment shouted out of the window as I started work: "Don't forget it's $house_number A next door, don't leave enough space for them to add an A in afterwards".

Really?  ???

We don't have wheelie bins, because this is Birmingham[1], but since we've lived here we've lost about 5 recycling boxes and a Mk 1 plastic rubbish bin.

Hard to tell how much of that is wind/binmen/theft, of course.  But my understanding is that it's SOP to nick a neighbour's[2] bin if yours disappears.

Depending on the bin-storage arrangements, marking can be more about preventing people from overfilling or putting the wrong things in your bin, though TBH, if someone's going to do that, they're unlikely to be doing so accidentally.


[1] More specifically, a part of Birmingham that's right next to the bit where they trialled experimental wheelie bin technology a few years ago.  As such, that makes us bottom of the list for the full-scale deployment.  It's supposed to happen in November or so.  I'm looking forward to a similar painting job, and not having to plan meals around the bin collections.
[2] If you've got a modicum of sense, you nick it from a neighbour a few houses away, obviously.

Last year a drunken wheelie bin appeared in the grounds of Larrington Towers.  It may have been left by the council after I requested a replacement organic waste bin but its distance from the gate and its recumbent posture indicate cheery East End urchins rather than burly blokes in hi-viz.

A bin, complete with Union Jack, beside an obscure cycle path near Nettetal, Niederrhein. Also, a plaque commemorating a dead member of the Bowes Lyon family. Knowing that Jane is as much of a royalist as I am, I feel certain that this particular bin will occupy a place very close to her heart.

Wheelie bins are so last year. We now have subterranean communal bins. Looks like a normal bin on the surface but this is just the opening to 2 X 2 X 3 metre bin in the ground.
Bad side, you have to walk down the road to deposit your bag of waste and a couple of parking spaces were lost.
Good side, they empty them a couple of times a week or when they are full and you can put anything in them that will fit into the rotating orifice.

That's not a bin. It's an experiment in archaeology.

Obviously one of the highlights of last week's tour was seeing a genuine blikvanger so I could photograph it for this thread:

No, we are much more down to earth in W-u-E. Stroud District Council have kindly provided us with the following:
Title: Re: Bins for Jane (and everyone else!)
Post by: David Martin on January 02, 2017, 12:06:27 pm
We have:
Grey bin for non-recyclable household waste, fortnightly collection.
Blue bin for non-glass recyclables , alternating fortnightly collection
Brown bin for garden waste - periodic collections according to the season (monthly or fortnightly)
Burgundy bin for glass - periodic collection according to the season.
small green bin (and caddy) for food waste collected weekly.

Overall the blue bin is the one that seems to fill up quickest.

Blaby District Council
Black lid - stuff - weekly
Green lid - everything dry recyclable (glass, paper, card, plastic, metal) - weekly
Brown lid - garden stuff, costs £19/year - collected when they feel like it
We also have our own Enfield District council brown caddy for compostable gunk.
Works well

One from the summer, a bin at the side of the road on the north side of the Col du Galibier. The aluminium plates are angled to deflect objects into the bin. The sign on the front gives the distance to the next bin.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171213/927092a12b1edcab788535e40b86b042.jpg)

I recall taking these and thinking, what a shame they've scattered the bins randomly across such a beautiful setting.

Remember this one?

It's bin day in Barnt Green, and as this one passed through my peripheral vision, I though it was Bill & Ted.  On closer inspection ...I've no idea.  Maybe Wowbagger or somebody under the age of 25 can explain?

Turns out that whoever was responsible is now no longer a fan of Joe and Demi, from Disney's rockier alternative to High School Musical, Camp Rock.  The adhesive holding the lower half of the guitar in place appears to have been particularly difficult to remove.
