The wheelie bin was a nice follow-on, making it easy for citizens to move their overflowing bins to the side of the road. It also makes it easy for the
binmen Waste Management operatives to bring the bin to the truck where a mechanical arm lifts and empties the bin.
binman’s operative’s heart rate is still close to resting rate. This is all quite the opposite of the times gone by when coalmen and binmen (they weren’t “operatives” back then) hauled heavy loads on their back.
Since things are so much easier now, why they hell can’t the lads (I’ve never seen a woman do the job) put the bins back where they found them? I’ve repeatedly asked Fingal’s Waste Management Department to ask the lads to return the bins to the path. Weren’t these people brought up to leave the place as they found it? It’s not as if the empty bins are heavy.
