Dustbin men have a certain amount of area to cover per day. They can't start too early as there will always be somebody who won't have put their rubbish out, hence you don't normally see charity van drivers before 9am for the same reason.

Good question.

In some countries they work at night.

Perhaps it's done in UKey to test your patience when you're held up, so you can work on improving yourself dearie.

In Spain refuse is collected every night except Sunday and holy days. There's no collection from households. You take your rubbish to communal bins nearby, there's one for each type of trash, in many towns the bins are sunk into the ground with a raised opening for you to tip into, the entire bin is lifted out by the waste collection lorry...neat.

Our binpersons arrive at 7.30 am every other Friday for the recycle rubbish, and the following Friday at 8.30 am for the rest...fascinating.

I'd expect you to be more philosophical about this sort of thing.

I suppose they have to collect at night in Spain because it's too hot during the day.

Our's come around about 7am and are very noisy those who forgot to put the bins out all rush out the door in their nightclothes.

How does the removal of our rubbish, potential disease creating deteritus and other assorted 'not wanted anymores' stop wealth production. If they stopped doing what they do, regardless of the time of day, then we would have many more problems than holding people up for a few minutes , whilst they go about their work.

Simon hi,

You should perhaps be grateful for all the services provided, if you had to dispose of all your own waste etc. you would have little time for your own little endeavours, after all life was not created to serve only your needs. If you dissolved your ego as you preach..........being delayed for several minutes by a dustcart would be no problem. Your real problem is not the dustcart but your own impatient ego. Let go of it and learn to flow like water. Resistance is futile.

In reply to an earlier post on 30 Jan 2013 13:47:42 GMT
I agree with you though, the dustcarts are a nuisance in the mornings, I've experienced it.

Simon hi

Silly argument ? No it was not an argument.

Why then don't you apply a bit of common sense to your problem and get up 10 minutes earlier and set off to work 10 minutes earlier. A simple solution and easily observed if ones mind is awake. God how can you make such a fuss over nothing. Many people have to allow for such delays to ensure that they arrive at work on time, why can't you?

In reply to an earlier post on 30 Jan 2013 14:26:14 GMT
Silly...you miss the point, with a bit of thinking we could create better flowing traffic in the mornings...are you a tree hugger?

Trying to tell us there's a queue outside your shop every morning waiting for you?

In reply to an earlier post on 30 Jan 2013 14:55:33 GMT
That's how to sort out inefficiency: carry on as before but just work a bit longer...nice.

Definition of stoooopidity: keeping repeating the same wrong behaviour time after time.

In reply to an earlier post on 30 Jan 2013 14:57:27 GMT
Is that what the OP is arguing?

I thought a man such as yourself could put the time spent in the jam to some constructive use; putting your nail varnish on or summat.
