  • I do not want to be a party pooper but don't the bins belong to the council and are we allowed to decorate them...and also they stay with the house when we move on??
  • I also wondered that cotsvale. would love to pimp my bin but are you sure we're allowed?? At the moment I have my door number painted on in white paint and I have still had one of them stolen :mad:

    I would argue that since we are charged for them if they get lost that they're not council property
    My Doctor told me that "1 out of 3 people who start smoking will eventually die." The other two apparently became immortal.

    maybe I'm lucky but i wasn't charged for a new one when the last 2 were stollen, so maybe mine do belong to the council??:confused:
  • Yeah - I had to pay £20 for my blue recycling bin :eek: That was just to have one initially.
    Squares knitted for my throw ~ 90 (yes!!! I have finally finished it :rotfl: )
    Squares made for my patchwork quilt ~ 80 (only the "actual" quilting to do now :rotfl:)

    I had my wheelie bin stolen twice now,first time still had all my rubbish in! they`d nick anything not nailed down where I live.Second time was last friday which annoyed me as I`ve had to make 3 trips to the tip.

    I have acquired a wheelie bin which was dumped near the railway lines and I`m going to pimp it up this weekend with the kids.

    I`m going for a pre-school dried pasta look.

    This is a great challenge,Thanks Martin!

    Just gotta buy some cheapo pasta and some sort of glue to be able to stick the pasta on.Will also varnish it.

    Will anyone be posting photos of their lovely new pimped wheelie bins?

    Would be nice to see how others have turned out and give other OS`ers ideas for their own.

    PS.Any ideas how to colour pasta without painting every single piece?

    I haven't had my bin stolen but one of the neighbours took ours by mistake once even though it had the house number painted on the top. It was returned a couple of days later half full of unwrapped rubbish and I had to hose it out after it was emptied. Now I have my house number painted in large figures on all four sides and the top.
  • the best idea I have seen is to paint a speed limit onthe side of your bin on bin day this has a dramatic effect on drivers passing by.

    Although not personal very effective
