The bin men are about, but they're not the usual crew. Of course, all the extra refuse means more trips back to base to empty.

It's now 09:50, normally my bin would have been emptied by now. I'll bet it'll be more like midday before it's emptied.

Inside my food box Rebbonk it said my day has changed to Fridays the next bin collection. 12.45 a bin wagon has just gone down Longford Rd by St Thomas church. No bin bin collection here today so far and no one has put their bins out either.

Ours was collected just after 11:15 (I'm the other side of the canal to you.)

The bin lorry must of been leaving your place then when I seen it going down towards town by St Thomas . Yes I thought you were where my daughter lived a few years ago on the other side of the canal ☺ you would know my son in law Keith he worked in the post office shop on the bridge .

I'm afraid I don't know him, but I've no doubt that Mrs R does. - She seems to know everyone!

Quite a few people around here are expecting a second collection tomorrow and have put their green bins out again despite it clearly being marked on the calendar as recycled waste bins only! :clown:
