Excitement in south Brummingham:  Shiny! New! Wheeliebins! have just been delivered.



The "warranty void if removed" tape is mostly about warning us that they're not going to actually empty any of them until next month.  I'm hoping it'll reduce the occurrence of this sort of thing.

I get to paint our house number (or possibly some Disney characters) on them tomorrow in an attempt at pre-empting bin theft.

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.

Using your skill and judgement, put an "X" where you think the centre of the ball bin is?

Many years ago there used to be a large department store in Newcastle called Binns. I recall on my unsuccessful university application there in 1971 I went to an interview, and all the municipal buses had "Shop at Binns" emblazoned over them.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

I think the Newcastle one has long gone. There's still one in Darlington (and possibly other Northern towns).

We have two ears and one mouth for a reason. We should do twice as much listening as talking.

There's a spoof advert for Binns - presumably the Newcastle one - in "The Big Hard One", the first compendium of the best bits of "Viz".

I've never been to Newcastle, or anywhere near it, but I seem to have heard of that shop.

Walking home from work this evening I spotted one of Zev's relatives scrounging in a bin:

That's the first time I've seen that bin not overflowing.

Seems a bit daft, having such an enormous bin just for icebergs, when a bowl of hot water should suffice...   ;D

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:
