One of our 'iceberg' refuse bins being emptied.

At first I thought "Fancy Wotton-under-Edge having something like that!" Then I realised...

No, we are much more down to earth in W-u-E. Stroud District Council have kindly provided us with the following:
  • A wheelie bin for general rubbish, emptied every other week.
  • A wheelie bin for recycling, emptied on the alternating weeks
  • Two boxes for recycled paper and card
  • An indoor 'caddy' for food waster to be emptied into
  • An outdoor bin for food waste collected every week.

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.

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.
