Well that bin didn’t last long!
However despite the criticism on social media and three readers’ letters out of five in this week’s News Shopper telling everyone that the reduced bin service is a fiasco, the service offered at my address and probably the whole street, has been uninterrupted. The old bins still litter the street but other than that all is well.
It seems reasonable to assume that the brown bin I used on September 5th was stolen rather than officially collected.
The new garden waste bins were emptied on schedule this morning but I had been suckered into believing Bexley council’s story about new 2015 registration computer equipped trucks telling the driver where to go. He showed up in VU58 JTY the same as always.
An early morning walk into Abbey Wood suggested that no one is bothering to lock the lid on the food waste caddy. It is perhaps not terribly obvious that it can be locked and if the broken handle I picked up is any guide, they are not as strong as I thought they might be.
