I noticed the rubbish truck had come to a stop outside my house for a while yesterday. Had a look out the window and saw a bag of rubbish had fallen out of my bin onto the road while the bin was being emptied. The driver got out of his truck, put on some gloves and picked up the bag and threw it in the truck. I thought that was pretty good of him. Unfortunately he drove off before I was able to get downstairs to say thanks.

That is great service. I once had the whole contents of my rubbish bin spread out over the street after the truck passed. Mid-summer, had forgotten to put that bin out 3 weeks in a row before that day! Some TAMS guy came to clean up the mess after I called Canberra Connect, but put it back in my bin. The CleanAway people refused to believe that it was their truck who had done it and I had no witnesses. The timing of the events offered some pretty strong circumstantial proof though.

Wow, that really was totally off topic, but who doesn’t enjoy a rubbish story?

The whole thing looks like a postie-trap to me.

You don’t leave your bin under the tree for collection do you? If so that may be why it is getting caught on the down swing. I have had a driver refuse to empty my bin because it was under a tree and he could not swing the bin up safely.

Get outta ya truck ya lazy bum and move it – is what i would say especially since they have to put a sticker on it to say why they didnt empty it.

From then on i wouldnt leave it there.

I remember we used to leave a case of beer for the Garbo’s that did the collection in our street in Sydney ovet he Xmas and New year period. What ever happened to humanity?

Here we see the Wheely Bin Fruit notice the seed has already dispensed.

I thought Wheelie Bin Fruit only germinated after fire?

I’d use the opportunity to wash the bin out.

That looks like the handiwork of a drop bear. Collecting objects for its mating display. Martin should watch his back.

This is how wheelie bins sleep. Just leave it be and call TAMS to come and capture it for release back into its natural habitat (aka the nearest creek).

Beats when it fills with rain water when the lid stays open and upright.
