What a Load of Rubbish

Householders are due to face new charges to have their non-recyclable rubbish collected under government plans. Proposals by ministers recommend that councils should be allowed to introduce "top-up" fees which could be up to £200/year, just to have their bins emptied.

So, effectively a "rubbish tax" on top of the rates you already pay to have your refuse cleared away...

And if that wasn't bad enough...

Mr X, received a criminal record and was fined £100 by magistrates (plus £100 costs) after putting paper in a bag meant for recyclable cans and bottles.

It was his second offence — the first had been to put a bin out on the wrong day.

Have a good day, all.
