Edward Street Recycling Mound

March 30, 2013

Due to Good Friday being a public holiday, the weekly recycle collection this week was on Saturday in areas to the south of Abingdon, including Edward Street – a long terraced street near the Albert Park where a recycle lorry cannot get between the parked cars, and where houses have no room for wheelie bins.
As a consequence the recycle lorry out-runners gathered all the green bags into a large mound a few minutes before the lorry arrived.

    Fortunate, then, that a Fire Engine didn’t need to get up that road ! The residents might reconsider their parking arrangements for a “worst-case” scenario.

    I’m pretty sure a fire engine could just squeeze through.

    I suspect the refuse lorry could too, but sensibly they don’t want to risk damaging vehicles.
