Default Swapping a wheelie bin lid

One of my wheelie bin lids had broken (the wind blew it over and snapped the
lids arm)

Now rather than bugger about phoning the council and asking for a new one I
was just going to pinch someone else bin lid on my way home from the pub
tonight (the fat bird at no 16 that still owes me 40 for a job I did last
week seems an ideal victim).

Now how do you change the lids? I need to know what tools to take with me..

Do your lids have a serial number stencilled on?

No. The bins have a serial number but not the lids.

Where are the RFID chips that are allegedly in them?

If that "fat bird" reads this group she will know who to send to police
to. :-)

And if dennis knew where I lived I would have been arrested last year when I
dumped a car outside a ******s house..

I really do not care what "some" people think about me. If the fat bird
complains about me I will break into her house and put a lettuce in her
fridge - that will scare her.

There aren't any on ours, but the hole for them is under the front flange.

In the front corners on the underside of the lids, there are two
cylindrical cavities, if you have them fitted, they go in there, but
ours don't.
