Snowflake British garbage collectors
A father said his local bin men should be 'ashamed' after he filmed his nine-year-old daughter moving a wheelie bin they refused to collect - after branding it too heavy.
Firefighter Paul McMillan said he took the footage to embarrass the refuse collectors who he suggested had gone soft compared to the bin men of the past who used to carry rubbish away on their backs.
He insisted there was nothing unusual in the bin and that there was still space inside when he put it out to be emptied in Cheylesmore, Coventry, on Tuesday. But when he returned later that day a sticker had been placed on the un-emptied container informing him that the bin was too heavy to be collected.
To prove just how manageable the bin was, he asked daughter Lacey to show the council workers how it's done"
