Public prepares itself for bin lottery


The British people are getting ready for the annual bin nonsense in which nobody, anywhere, has any idea which bin will be emptied.

Three bank holidays in eight days, with a couple of weekends thrown in, will inevitably throw the bin men into utter confusion. Peter Thape (38) is hoping that the 89p mince pies he left on top of the bin last Tuesday might help the bin men look more favourably at his overflowing rainbow of bins, but fears that the ad hoc schedule might deliver unfamiliar bin men, and thus his investment will have been lost.

‘I’m going to put every bin out, every day, for a fortnight,’ said Thape

‘If there’s a milimetre of snow, you can add another two weeks to that,’ added Thape
