Tide turning on wheelie bins?

Home » Latest News » Tide turning on wheelie bins?

The news published on Audlem Online on Sunday that the Green wheelie bins are being phased out at the end of March makes us wonder if we are now past the high water level of wheelie bin provision.

Back in 2006, new bins seemed to be arriving on a monthly basis, some fully equipped with bugging devices to measure and, some suspected, to tax householders for putting out their rubbish.

Regular readers may recall how Audlem Online responded on 1st April 2006. However, as our daily readership is now ten times greater than in 2006, here's a repeat for those that missed it:-

More wheelie bins on the way
1st April 2006

Following last month's Audlem Online Vote Poll on brown wheelie bins for material that can be composted, the Council has announced that as well as brown bins, Audlem will be getting three other new bins in 'light tan', 'rust' and 'blue denim' colours.

The light tan bins will be for old shoes, but you can put black and dark tan shoes in as well. The rust coloured bin will be for any old iron while the blue denim coloured bins will be for you to Slingin Blue Jeans and any old clothes.

The light tan bins will be collected on Tuesdays (just say 'Shoesday' to yourself and it will be easy to remember); the rust coloured bin on Fridays as long as it's not raining and the blue denim bin on every third Monday except when there is a Statutory Bank holiday when it will be either the Monday before or after depending on the position of the moon.

Anybody who complains will also receive a yellow bin as a first warning for dissent.
