    We get to use our wheelie bin for the first time today.

    Can't wait to see how the chavvy neighbours cram 6 bags of rubbish into theirs. I estimate the bins hold 2.

    We got ours last year - they gave us the 1/2 sized ones as most bpeople in Bexhill are 943 years old and use them solely for the disposal of meals on wheels packaging then told us they would collect them fortnightly :mad: we had to beg and plead for a larger one as we were driving to the tip twice a week, we still have to go weekly to get rid of the cardboard which they wont accept

    Hardly good for the environment

    I had to buy one as Cornwall are so behind the times we still have to put bags out.I was fed up with sweeping the street after the cats and seagulls had helped themselves!

    They do collect recycling once a fortnight though.

    Our garbage people just had "spring cleaning" pick up...however, they just sprung it on me 2 days prior to pick up. I guess they didn't want too much spring cleaning. We have normal plastic bins for trash and recycling, but if you put anything more than your alloted amount then it goes you $2. So, I frantically put loads of things out. Then of course, we had people going by all days scoping out the trash treasure. It was weird to me.

    My Dad has about 8 wheelie bins now :( All colours and for all things... he can't remember which bin is for what.. he's 88 now. Good job he has a long driveway or we don't know where the heck he would put them.

    blimey Dawn, I didn't realise you hadn't got yours 'til now.

    Ours worked out ok, recycling every fortnight is pushing it a bit sometimes but we somehow manage to cram it all in - DH even had DS9 standing in the bin jumping up and down on the recycling to squash it down just after Christmas!


    My Aunty in Kingston has a ridiculous amount of bins to deal with
