  • (n): Garbage or waste collector. British usage.

    I've a quirky acquaintance who plays the Viola d'Amore, a violin-like instrument with a figural head carved into the scroll. She had one custome-made and had the luthier carve a likeness of her binman on the instrument because she really liked his profile. I thought he looked like a regular corn-fed southern gentleman, complete with goatee and mullet hair cut.
