This morning when I took the rubbish bins up to the roadside this is the scene that greeted me.
We live on a quiet, semi-rural road and our driveway is opposite a minor road junction. The rubbish truck does not go down the side road so each rubbish collection day the bins from the side road and a few surrounding properties are lined up on the verge near our driveway.
This morning one bin was open and several items were scattered around. I am not sure how this happened but I know that with the automated collection of the ‘wheelie’ bins the remnants would be left behind. I grabbed a bag, collected up the loose items and put them in the bin. This ensured that we were not left with a mess on the verge.
