    Trash pickup

    I realize that this story is about England but it seem like what happens there eventually ends up happening in this country....

    Trash bins that need three or more fingers, constitute a health and safety risk as they could fall from the lorry while being emptied.

    Also last month, war veteran Lenny Woodward, 95, was told that binmen would no longer collect his rubbish because he had put a ketchup bottle in the wrong bin.

    And in April bus driver Gareth Corkhill, 26, from Whitehaven in Cumbria, was fined 210 and given a criminal record because the amount of rubbish in his wheelie bin meant the lid was open by a few inches.

    The sun has truly set on the British Empire.

    It's important to remember that England used to matter....

    Re: Trash pickup

    Don't most people just drive to an apartment complex and drop their garbage in the complex' dumpsters?

    Or does that only happen where I live?
