Our bin men haven't been for a good while now. We have communal bins (I'm on an estate) and they're overflowing at the moment.
When I first moved in the old git downstairs went though the bins a lot. He hadn't lost anything or accidentally thrown anything away, he was just being nosy and seemingly enjoying opening up the black bags and seeing what crap was inside them.
Got a letter through the door from someone in my area/street inviting me to join the local instance of "nextdoor.co.uk". From what I can see it looks like some kind of social network for your neighbourhood.
So what do we think:
* Nice gesture to join a group to chat about local events and promote friendliness and cohesion within the neighbourhood?
* Sinister trap door leading to the local swingers club and/or satanic cult?
