While I sat there and waited for the road to clear I did think about going the wrong side of the keep left bollard, just like one of the other cyclists in the video and the two drivers. I certainly didn't entertain the idea of using the pavement as the second cyclist did. It seemed to me at the time that the dustcart driver was being thoughtless in the way he blocked the road, presumably knowing there were so many bins to empty. As I rode off I even shook my head mildly frustrated at the hold-up. Watching the video though I came to think differently. Those men working at the back of the lorry have a tough job moving heavy bins around. They have to step into the road do hook them up to the back of the lorry and had the driver moved forwards two things would have happened: 1, the men would have had to push the bins further and 2, they would have had drivers passing close by them. So I'm pleased then that I was fine with waiting, albeit with mild frustration and I was also pleased that the white van man behind also waited - he could easily have followed the two other drivers and could have possibly stemmed a tide of other motorists.
