Having own bin would give control
I’M sure I’m not alone in wishing I had my own wheelie bins.
At least then I would be able to control what goes into the general waste bin, etc.
If you live in a communal close with another nine householders — mostly families with two to four children under school age — then one Eurobin is simply inadequate to cater for everyone’s rubbish.
As a result of having no control, the Eurobin is overflowing with bags of nappies and dog poo bags.
When houses are decluttering — which seems to be often — old carpets and household junk piles up, old sofas are left on the street and any old item is chucked in.
The Eurobin can be emptied on a Tuesday then be overflowing again within 24 hours.
I also can’t help but notice that the Eurobins are overflowing with burst black bags of waste all over what used to be Bonnie Dundee.
Now people are regarding streets and grass verges all over the city as dumping grounds for any old iron. Bonnie Dundee is now a tip.
