And, recycling in the UK....

The Green police are coming...
A 95-year-old widow in Britain was threatened with legal action after accidentally putting an empty butter tub in the wrong recycling bag.

The woman -- who had washed 15 tins and put them in the correct bag for collection -- mistakenly put the tub in a green bag instead of a black one.

A recycling crew refused to collect the green recycling bag after spotting the empty butter tub. An official notice was also stuck to the bag at the pensioner's home in Swansea. The notice advises householders why the bag was not collected, and includes a line saying that mixing up recycling can lead to prosecution.

The son of the widow, who did not want to be named, saw the notice before his mother did and took the bag for recycling.

Karen Walters, the woman's 42-year-old granddaughter, told the South Wales Post newspaper, "She is a really law-abiding citizen. If she had seen the warning, she would have had a heart attack. It's the fact that a 95-year-old was threatened with prosecution. It's scary."

The Islamic Republik of Britain needs to practice fascism before full implementation under Sharia law.

I understand there is a large city in Canada that has recycle police. Thank goodness that the greenies are spending our money wisely! Cheers.
