Petula Clark sang "Don't Sleep in the Subway" back in 1967. You can now add garbage bins to the list. As a commercial garbage truck started to compact a load Thursday, Oak Park (Michigan) police got a frantic cell phone call from a Detroit man trapped inside the rubbish. The man told police he was Dumpster diving for returnable bottles when he fell asleep. Obviously the fumes must have knocked him out.
Can't wait until the Ontario government puts a deposit on wine and liquor bottles (see my earlier post). Dumpster diving will be coming to Toronto.
