Yes usually. I have given them a few

I'm sure they'd take them, the only problem is it's not the 19th century any more.

Unless you happen to live here

Most of them are **** scum now.

I've not seen a rag and bone man for about 20 years. Thought it was a thing of the past. Wish they still had one here.

Same with the guys who used to walk round street selling whelks, mussels and candy apples.

It depends if the cart is travelling over a cobbled street or not.

why do they pull them themselves depending on the street covering? oO

Rag and bone men?? Do they still exist?

We get them regular near us. Sometimes 2 or 3 a day at the weekend.
A complaint was made to the council at one point because they were going round at 7 on a Sunday morning.

Many do not get into the habit.

Two nuns cycling down a cobbled street.
The first one says "I've never come this way before".
The second one replies "It must be the cobbles".

are you sure that it's not that you and the OP happen to live in an area where Britain's worst horder lives and they are just on holiday at the moment and so can't go round collecting junk?

I get them come around, probably 3-4times a week, sometimes 3 or 4 different rag and bone men collecting scrap.

They took our bath, a few of them didn't because it wasn't steel.

They literally take anything, leave something outside 5 minutes and its gone.

Though, our old tumble dryer, left outside it took about a week for them to pick it up?

No, the ' rag and bone man ' only wants rags and bones,

you require the services of the the local ' ancient tv and walkman man '.

They are call pie keys now.

I put a large metal BBQ out this morning almost an hour ago. Its a record..... its still there now.

I had a dishwasher out once that went in 5 minutes! Rich pickings here...... plus being to close to moncacker sites isnt such a good thing though it saves a trip to the dump!

Rag'n'bone men. Aaah, them were the days. I remember when I was about 10, I took some stuff to get a cane bow and arrow off him. I ran home like a dog with 2 willies. When I got home I was showing it to my sister and fired it out of the front door..... just as a young lad was riding past on his bike. Straight into the spokes on his front wheel. He ended up stood on his head10 yards down the road

I know you shouldn't laugh really..

How does a dog with two willies run?

Very carefully.
