Hav­ing own bin would give con­trol

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

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.
