At one time if you had some rubbish,
You just chucked it in the bin.
But now you have to watch out
You don't commit a deadly sin.
You must scrutinise it closely,
Compare it to a list.
Decide which heading matches it
Then watch that you don't miss.
For some stuff it's quite obvious,
Which bin you need to choose.
Like the bottles and the cans
Left over from the booze.
But other stuffs more complicated,
And isn't quite as clear.
Stick it in the wrong bin
And that could cost you dear.
So get out the instructions
And look all down the list.
The rubbish that you have in hand
Appears to have been missed.
By now the whole procedure
Has become a bore.
So check that no ones watching
And chuck it in next door.
(It's a joke, just a joke! I would never ever do that, I have lovely neighbours)
