The Lichfield Council bin men test

Yesterday I blogged about the cardboard mountain outside our house which was caused by the Christmas toys. I don’t currently have time to take it all to the recycling centre, so I put the huge pile of cardboard on the end of our drive and hoped for the best. Strictly speaking the bin men could ignore it because it’s not inside one of the green recycling boxes, and bin men always tend to get bad press due to the whole “your wheelie bin is open, I’m not taking it” argument.

So I folded the cardboard as best I could and plonked the pile (have a look for yourself) on the end of the drive last night. This is a picture of our drive this morning… Empty!

Thanks Lichfield Council ! Top stuff :) See, bin men are good blokes after all… in Lichfield at least… :)
