Paper bins

Recommended Posts

This is actually of fairly recent history, but does anyone remember the paper bin bags we had in some areas in the 1970s. I certainly remember them in Grenoside and Chapeltown.

You had a concrete stand and a wire contraption at the top which held your paper bin sack. There was also a lid on it.

When full, you tied it up and left for the binman. I can't remember how long they lasted before being replaced with conventional bins again!

I remember them but never had one. Our bins were nice, solid galvanised steel until replaced by plastic wheelie bins.
