£1000 FINE FOR PUTTING FOOD SCRAPS IN WRONG BIN!


Householders could be fined £1,000 if they throw food scraps and potato peelings into the dustbin under a Government 'zero waste' policy. They will be forced to sift through their rubbish for anything that can be recycled, reused, rotted or burnt for electricity. The crackdown will create so much recyclable material that homes could be given five wheelie bins and waste boxes to cope.
Now don't get me wrong, I don't mind a bit of sensible recycling, although I do baulk at washing out the baked bean cans and taking the labels off, ( Mrs D.L. is very consciousness), but these plans are the usual, JOBSWORTH, TOTALITARIAN, LABOUR SHITE.
It WILL be a full time job just PUTTING THE FUCKING RUBBISH OUT!

The arseholes here refused to take my paper recycling a couple of months ago because ... it was in the wrong coloured fucking box??? I had put it in a blue box when it was supposed to be in a black box.

Don't get me fucking started.

The council and there cretinous 'employees' can go fuck themselves with a rusty spanner.

WE pay THEM.

It's about time they were reminded of that little fact.

I suggest 10s of thousands of people turn up at their town halls on the same day and toss a bag of rubbish out of the window as they pass by.

A friend of mine got round this problem and has another general waste bin supplied by the council.

If anyone wants to know how they managed it email me. It's too delicate a reason to write publicly. :)

You're so right DL, everyone's kitchen will end up looking like a mini recycling plant. How people in flats are going to manage goodness knows.

Scunnert, tell the bastards you're colour blind and they're abusing your human rights or some pish and they'll change their minds sharpish, if you say you're going to sue!

Rab, Lorenzo's idea is excellent. Let's dump our fucking food waste on the Town Hall steps. Only trouble is in Kilmarnock half the town will be cleaning it up to feed the weans!

Subrosa, as I don't have any grass in my garden as I decked and paved it, I managed to get them to swap a brown garden waste bin for another blue recycling bin. That's south Ayrshire for you, consumer friendly!

If you feel it's a bit indelicate I'll mail you and you can reply and I'll stick it up because as you can see I prefer indelicate!

I was chatting with a friendly eco-loon about this just the other day. I suggested " If the Council care so much about recycling why don't they just take the bloody lot and sort it out themselves ? "

Her reply " Oh yes, that's one of the things we are pushing for, but the Councils don't want to spend the money ".

BTW, whoever did that poster is a cunt, my Council would go ballistic if their Litter Gestapo found batteries or glass in the green bin.
