It is reported that residents in Canterbury are complaining that some of their rubbish sometimes gets stuck in the wheelie bin and the refuse collectors won’t unstick it and empty the bins completely.
You fill your bin, they empty it,
You want them taking every bit,
But sometimes half of it stays in,
Perhaps a bag or sometimes tin.
The problem is that some gets stuck,
Perhaps a spot of dreadful luck,
But dustbin men say, “If it sticks,
It will be left there, that is it!”
The residents say, “Don’t be daft,
You are all experts at your craft.
Ao you will surely know that trick –
To poke it with a wooden stick.”
The Council, though, says, “No can do.
The problem’s really one for you;
You’re stuffing rubbish in too tight,
Which won’t come out without a fight.
We always give the bins a shake,
As much a rattle as they’ll take,
But if that fails there is no doubt,
We don’t have time to poke it out.”
So when you fill your bins take care,
For stuffing too much trash in there,
Will likely be a waste of time,
And later on might be a crime!
