Bin Laden

My local council has implemented a new rubbish collection policy (and apparently, an exciting new range of CONTAMINATED! stickers for anybody who accidentally leaves a can in a bin, or the wrong kind of plastic in the recycle box). The main part of the policy: from now on, if your bin lid isn’t completely closed they won’t empty your bin.

Then what?

Seriously, I don’t get it. If they don’t take your bin, you’ll have even more rubbish the following week. What are you supposed to do, other than maybe take your rubbish to the local council offices and leave it in reception? Set it on fire? Throw it at a tramp?
