The bin that's supposed to be on the path here has decided to get some exercise, and has wandered into the bushes down the brae. Can it be replaced?

  • Bin has found its way up to the path again, but doesn't have the metal inner part that holds rubbish.

  • Edinburgh council say the bin is privately owned, so aren't going to replace the inner bit. Presumably they won't empty it either.
