Is there a prize for taking a photo of Jane and a bin?

As long as there's one for taking a photo of CrinklyLion and a bridge.

That looks very much like the bin on Tankerton Slopes.

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?

Meanwhile, in Tanworth-in-Arden, the bin adornments are classier.  Or possibly an attempt at camouflage, it's hard to tell:

Ha!  It's not what you know, it's who you know...

Quote from: IRC (names removed to protect the guilty)
<kim> [REDACTED] you're down with the kids... do you know who these people are? [URL to bin photo]
<[REDACTED]> I’m slightly ashamed that my first guess was correct, they’re the lead character in Disney’s TV movie Camp Rock, the rockier alternative to High School Musical, that I’ve never seen
<kim> ha!
<kim> should have just asked you in the first place
<[REDACTED]> at least I didn’t know that their names were Joe and Demi until I googled it
<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.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

Just to be different, the absence of a bin:



I was wondering if it was some sort of passive-aggressive comment on the illegal parking that usually takes place on that corner, but then nikki pointed out that it's just Normal For Selly Oak.  Cyclist shown undertaking the rubbish to turn left because I didn't manage to get a photo of the SUV performing some particularly gratuitous pavement-driving to achieve the same manoeuvre.
