Thank you to whoever it was that did that." People were quick to respond to her post. One woman wrote: "Good for you to notice what they had done and be thankful for it!

So many would not even have noticed. "Could you stick a bag of sweets or something to the bin lid next time with a thank you card?" Another said: "I remember a time years ago where the bins were metal and had no bin bags.

The bin men came into the drive and humped the bins on their back and tipped them individually into the truck.

"A friend wanted to hide her bin so those passing by couldn't see it, and the bin man knocked at the door and said 'Hey missus where have you hidden it this week?'"
