that sounds about right as they always take everything away. What about the recycling guys?

And what about the postman ? We are receiving so many parcels for our neighbours at the moment we seem to be an unofficial parcel office ! Do I get a tip from the RM ????

Would happily tip bin men if the did a great job the other 11 months of the year, it's funny how all the little bits are picked up and the bins are put back in the right place in December!

Personally, i have nothing but praise for our bin-men...12 months of the year.
I find them helpful, polite and hard working. Try going to live in Brighton if you want to whine about something. I could tell you stories about that lot which would make you cry.

Oh dear... The charges for Council Tax are pretty steep but I don't think that that fact suggests that bin men are necessarily living the life of Riley.

who says they are living the life of Riley? but they get well paid I believe , in fact they are probably better off than me so no, no tip.

My Dad worked as a council gardener in a park. When the binmen knocked for their tip at Christmas (holding their little notebook) she used to ask if they or their kids enjoyed going to the park and would they be tipping her husband. Where does this absurd custom come from?
