£110 FINE FOR PUTTING RUBBISH OUT ON WRONG DAY


British householders now face £110 on the spot fines if they put their rubbish out on the wrong day! Sounds like another way for local councils to line their pockets to me! Then there was the case of the first householder, a mum of three, to be prosecuted for putting the wrong sort of rubbish in her recycling bin. (Fortunately she was cleared). Yet we have murderers and paedophiles walking the streets. Is the world going mad? Where will it all end? In the loony bin I shouldn’t wonder. Apparently local councils in this country have got nothing better to worry about than what day we put out the rubbish!

Now you've got me-these seem to be the very same green bins the French use..non? They have some sort of bottom contraption so they can be easily lifted up & dumped into the truck and the workers don't have to mess with them too much. I was impressed. Our NYC system is a disaster=very messy all over the streets with unpleasent aroumas.They seem to want to fine you for breathing over there...what can you do? :(
