Emptying the wheelie bins

I've previously shown you a roadsweeper and a wheelie-bin in the street ready for collection. You've also seen how they empty litter bins so now here we have the refuse collection lorry emptying our black wheelie bin.

We have three wheelie bins outside our house. The black one is for general rubbish and is collected weekly. We have a blue one for paper which is only collected every two months, so we often forget when they are due to come for it.

Then there is a green one which is for glass. When they empty this, once a fortnight, they leave a red plastic sack. You put cans and plastic bottles in the sack and then put the sack inside the green bin.

Some people also have an optional brown bin which is for garden rubbish -- grass cuttings, hedge clippings and the like.

Simple, isn't it?

After reading about your refuse bins, I will forever more call mine a "wheelie bin". That's a very nice name for something I've heretofore called a trash can.
