How to get to the bins: Just to the side down May Avenue (frequently used by pedestrians), then round to the left taking the first gate you find on your left in front of the grey door. The bins are blue. Watch out for deliveries and Tesco staff on fag breaks!

How to get to the bins: Take the alley way two stores down to the left as you face the Londis, this will lead you straight to the bacon baps, and other wonders to be found here!
