|Over here Bushy we have a hard rubbish collection twice a year.|
You put your old chairs, couches etc on the curb and over the week it takes the council to collect it there seems to be a redistribution under the banner of ones mans trash is another mans treasure.
So your mental image of Vince head down,bum up in someones rubbish bin, while daunting (eye bleach required) isn't quite accurate.
That's what they did in my old neighborhood, when I lived in Brooklyn, NY.
People put out stuff that was in decent to good shape out for anyone that wanted it on the fence, or just outside. One time we were getting rid of an old sofa, and love seat, by the time we were taking out he love seat the sofa was gone.
The real junk/garbage went into the garbage.
