Are the 'bin police' coming here???
This is from the UK....
Uniformed posses of “bin police” are set to replace traffic wardens as the most loathed busybodies on the streets.
So far they have slapped fixed penalties of up to £100 on more than 2,000 householders for environmental misdemeanours such as overfilling wheelie bins, leaving out too many bags or putting rubbish out at the wrong time.
Councils are now sending wardens on a £299 “waste crime” course, run by Keep Britain Tidy, to hone their tactics for prosecution.
More than 20 councils employ inspectors to look for what the government calls “waste receptacle” offenders, and have issued fines of £110,000 over the past two years.
