Anyone else had their blue bin lid stolen??

Recommended Posts

We'd left our blue bin out on Monday night ready for our Tuesday collection, then with the snow it just got left there (as did everyone elses on our street - a cul de sac).

 

Off out for a quick drink last night the bin was on the floor (snow) and the lid missing. Then walking down the street we noticed about another 10 blue bins also missing their lids.

 

Will we have to pay for a new one?

If you report it stolen you will get a free replacement. Kids use them for sledges.

If they can get mine off they're welcome to it, just spent about 10 minutes prying the lid off to put a bin bag in it :gag:

I've seen loads of kids (some of them not very small kids!) using them as sledges. Loads in Bingham Park.

Did you not see the snow ? If you did,they should off burgled you........for been stupid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Veolia was saying put black bins out anyway after the first heavy snow fall and they'd do their best to collect so maybe same for blue bins. Anyway they don't deserve to be victims of crime!

Many people don't tie their plastic covers on, it pays if you do.

There's a black tie string on them to tie them on so when the wind gets up you don't loose them.
