More reason to have them emptied daily, a simple yet effective solution, to an old problem.

To be honest I actually agree with pembury53. We used to make fires in parks as kids all the time, and we even tried to burn down a community centre. We smashed a window and threw burning paper through the broken window. It never worked though unfortunately. Would of been a right laugh seeing it go up in flames. It's just kids being kids. No harm being caused in a bin fire. Its controlled.

It wouldn't have been funny if an aerosol can blow up in the idiots faces and at that time of morning it wouldn't have been kids.
So once again Tax payers foot the bill for stupid idiots

Life would be boring if you lived by the rules. That's why I do what the hell I like. Rules don't apply to me.
