Local councils have agreed that bins will wear a sturdy prophylactic until the end of lockdown.
Bins were hoping that a relaxation of lockdown might mean that the compulsory use of a sheath may be postponed.
But local bin user, Peter Thape is very aware that a happy hat on a bin also stops the transfer of unwanted STI’s from one bin to another.
‘The council have said that obligatory rubbers on bins will prevent unwanted bin pregnancies,’ said Thape.
‘With limited resources at this time, the council does not need a number of baby bins created; makes sense, really,’ he added.
