Rubbish Collection and the Case of the Missing Bin !!

I rolled out my bin this morning for the weekly rubbish collection and by the time I came home this morning .. it was GONE !! STOLEN !! AAARRRGGGGHHH !!

Since I’m here, I might as well share a bit of information about … Rubbish Collection! :D
If you live in a house, the council will provide you at least 2 bins – a plain coloured one for normal rubbish and yellow top bin for recyclables. These 2 are provided as part of the council rates that you pay on your house. And of you pay an additional fee; you can even get a green top bin for your gardening waste like leaves, grass clippings, branches, etc.

The council sends trucks around once a week to collect them and you have to roll out the bins to the nature strip. They came around quite early so most people roll them out the night before.

Not the most glamorous topic today, but hey not everything about REAL life is interesting. And this is the essence of what this blog is all about and why it is different from all the flashy guides that you find on the net – all fluff and no substance.

REAL and PRACTICAL information about REAL EVERYDAY living in Melbourne!!
