Large swathes of the country will experience high winds on Wednesday night/thursday morning,can I request if your rubbish/recycling day is thursday to put your stuff out as late as possible,maybe 06:00am.
Its not a nice site to see rubbish all over the place,
not to mention the chance of colliding with a low flying recycling box's
Keep safe every one

My bin goes out on a Thursday evening for Friday emptying.
Wind should have abated by Thursday night.

Our bin day is Thursday, Thanks for the alert.

Will tie down the lids as the bins are empty!

6 am! I’m not sure that time exists, not been up that early for years! So I’ll have to hope for the best - but I will clean up they get blown over.

I love that folk are now posting their bin day!
As it happens, Thursday is our bin day. Black bin this week, with all the non recyclable stuff.
It's also wheelie klean (sic) day!
Our bin day used to be Friday. It took me about five years to get used to the change...

My bins are at the end of the drive right now as it's bin day today. I'm keeping my eye on them to make sure they don't go walkabout....or flyabout.

It's non-recyclable week so there will be no risk of food waste bags spilling out all over the road outside.

Just looked outside and we're amazed to see that all four bins have been blown from their fairly secure area and are on their sides on the path.
The new, large and heavy garden waste bin had been moved some distance, spilling contents along the way.

We must have had a whirlwind, there is no other explanation.
