In the UK a villain has been apprehended for his heinous crime. He has been fined $500 and his criminal record will stay with him for years to come.
This depraved lawbreaker overfilled his wheelie bin by a massive 8 centimetres. How disgusting!!
Even though his bins are only emptied once every two weeks I don’t know why they didn’t simply haul him away to prison to make a real example of him. There’s really no excuse.
Just to put this in context, in the UK paragons of virtue such as shoplifters only get fined $200.
Obviously cutting down on waste is a priority for local councils running out of space to dispose of rubbish, but when fly-tippers who dump their rubbish anywhere they can find space *also* only get a $200 fine if caught! Surely this is sending the wrong message to people who have more rubbish to dispose of than most?
I often find myself running up and down the street ahead of the rubbish carts dumping my rubbish in other people’s bins in our street… I can see this happening in the UK from now on, with more serious intent and repercussions.
According to the report 45,000 people were fined last year and now live with criminal records because they failed to close their bin lids, put their rubbish out on the wrong day, or left extra black bags alongside their bins… what the hell is going on over there??
I’d hate to live in the UK these days, there is a vein of total bureaucratic insanity running through society.
