Manchester Woman Calls 999 on Maggots in Wheelie Bin

Wednesday, 21 August 2013 16:42:38 Europe/London

There's precious little less appetizing than festering rubbish and maggots, but one woman in Manchester found exactly that when she opened her bin lid - and promptly dialled 999. Although emergency operators might have more severe things to deal with than the single grossest sight any housewife can find on her property, dirty rubbish bins and hot summer months don't mix well, and unattended rubbish can attract all sorts of creepy crawlies with bothersome odours that can waft into neighbouring homes.

Wheelie Bins Can Be as Good Looking as They are Useful

Thursday, 27 June 2013 16:48:05 Europe/London

It would seem wheelie bins would serve only one purpose...as a place to put your refuse for the garbage collector to pick up and take away. Normally, one doesn’t think of a wheelie bin as anything other than a utilitarian device that serves its purpose well – and conveniently – but lacks any “pizzazz,” and certainly isn’t particularly visually appealing.

Waste bins began as heavy, round and metal containers with two handles on the side and the top (to get a firm hold) and a lid to cover them.
