That garbage isn't piled up, it has been heaped up by people who should be prosecuted.
The bags are not neatly stacked as could easily have been the case, they have just been flung on the heap.
The rubbish doesn't belong to the council until they collect it from your property so this mess is just fly tipping.

Correct. As I have said SOME of the local people are not fit to be called Humans.

well i am going to suggest the council sack my usual gang and employ the temps who came on friday (should have been monday)...they put all the household waste and the recycle into one wagon and then came down to my front door and collected 3 big bags of garden waste and slung that in as well..now thats what i call service...[Skipping Happy] did you also know that if you lift the lid of your wheelies there is a code and everytime your bins are emptied comptuters can tell how heavy the bins are and can also tell which house number it belongs to...

Is it a visual bar code, or can it be "obscured by rotting contens being smeared over it

Are you also aware that if you sniff the bin after it has been emptied, you can tell who the bin man was who tipped it.

All my bins have this code, it is very common on plastic products. It is a date of manufacture indicator.

I can't ague that the bins are not roughly weighed, when being emptied, for the safety of the collection vehicle, but the real identification of the bin is an embedded chip which is openly identified to the customer on delivery.

Our bins are being emptied at the moment.
The truck is an Olympus Twin Pack so the recycling on the right and the garbage on the left never meet.

A stereoscopic camera?

The green waste was also taken away this afternoon, they were referring to paperwork so as to visit the correct houses.

Our Green waste was collected this morning too. I put the bin out around 6.15, it was emptied around 6.45.

This strike has backfired. According to the early reports the council were looking to stop using agency workers and get the regular apes to do a full week.
We are getting a better service from the agency guys, they take everything, leave the bins neatly placed and no mess.
They are probably happy to be working, unlike the regulars who think they are doing us a favour just for turning up and want to get home as soon as possible, screw the job.

Time to start getting rid of the strikes ringleaders.

Never mind the Ringleaders it's time to get rid of the whole dammed lot. It's fair to say that most if not all of the agency guys are without a job. So sack the idle and give the agency guys the full time jobs, they all have experience now.
