Cornish town lands prestigious bin award; civic pride restored.


There is a palpable sense of joy on the streets of St Austell today following news that a bin on High Cross Street has been voted the Best Bin in the World by an international panel of judges.

Located close to a takeaway near the heart of Cornwall's most populous town, the bin has long been a favourite with locals and emmets alike.

"That's some bin, innum?" one local man known only as Jedd told the Rake & Herald.

"Found some bones in it once."

"Made 'em into a skirt."
