There are rubbish bins & recycle bins always blocking the footpath all week round. I could understand it if they where just out at rubbish collecting day. But this photo was taken late Friday afternoon just near the corner of Carbine road & Waipuna road, it was taken on Carbine road looking towards Waipuna road intersection. In the residential part of carbine road. There is lots of free space on the land where grass grows they could shove their bins, I have seen from time to time lady pushing prams, rather sad if the wheels fall over the kerb and the baby gets run over. I always like to pass a oncoming pram on the kerb side of the pram for this reason. On Monday a day or two before next collection day I might start collecting bin numbers printed on the bins still left on the footpaths, so you do not have to visit carbine road or any other neighbouring road, you just look up your records from your office. Note: I used number 1 Carbine road to bring up the map, number 1 carbine road is not a residential address, it is a very small park, I did not want to put in a number when they do not leave bins on the footpath I was in a rush to catch a bus on Ellerslie - panmure highway, I only had time for a quick photo.
