Private Bin

By Solidarity - 7 July 2010 38

I was wondering if anybody had any media/pictures/good stories about the Private Bin, which existed in Civic where ICBM is these days?

Entirely for research use only, will not be published/publicly features etc.

What’s Your opinion?

I remember getting a nasty burn from poking my finger into the hole of the smoke machine, drinking way (way, way) too many vodkas and on one occasion having to break a young cadets nose when he couldn’t keep his hands off my girlfriend.

I don’t think I ever bought a drink there. I had to be monumentally blotto to set foot in the place.

Great photo at #1, many memories.

I don’t have any pics myself or too many notable memories, but I did work at the Bin and Waffles for a couple of years as a cleaner and dish pig.

I just remember Phil the hot dog man was a pretty good bloke. Rocking up at 6 in the morning to kick the stragglers out was often entertaining. The Female toilets were as bad, or worse, than the male toilets. The wait-kitchen staff ration was way out of whack at Waffles. And McCoy was a dirty piece of work, but handy with a paint brush, haha.

Downstairs, I remember the car hanging off the wall, the plaque with the names of all the people who’d consumed 24 Elephant beers in one sitting, the sticky floor (and the fact that if you got that stuff on your clothes it was never coming out). I remember getting kicked out for wearing a flanny and goming back in through the back gate to the ‘beer garden’.

Upstirs, I remember getting a nasty burn from poking my finger into the hole of the smoke machine, drinking way (way, way) too many vodkas and on one occasion having to break a young cadets nose when he couldn’t keep his hands off my girlfriend.

What happened at the Bin, stays at the Bin.

…probably still stuck to the floor!

The Peter McCoy story would potentially be more interesting.

Owner of the Private Bin
Personal friend of Robbie Waterhouse and beneficiary of the Fine Cotton affair
The alleged victim of international scammers…

I remember when 3 RAR came to the bin, very messy indeed. Many a copper and MP were on site.

Good stroies about the Private Bin were few and far between.

The Bin….

Can’t say I remember it even though I went there plenty of times.
