Someone needs to call in Ross and Norris McWhirter. Or Roy Castle. Or whoever it is that runs the Guinness Book of Records these days.
Is this a record-breaker?
This one house in East Croydon has NINE wheelie bins.
Surely that’s a record, even in the Binmageddon borough of Croydon?
The house, like so many in the borough, has been cut up into flats. Four of them.
And someone at Veolia, the council’s rubbish contractors, managed to work out that between them, the occupiers would need nine wheelie bins.
One of the residents said today, “The house in the photo is common in houses on my street. Will some of them be removed?
“The occupiers in my building are using all the bins, but they’re not all being emptied. And who can blame the bin men? Crazy situation.”
But can Inside Croydon’s loyal reader offer any photographic evidence where Councillor Stuart Collins and the bin men have gone over the top in the creation of #CroydonBinChaos and provided one property with more than nine bins?
