Careful where you put it!

Things are starting to get back to normal as the Government backs a plan to fine people for putting litter in the wrong bins on the streets!

Putting a crisp packet in a bin marked for cans could get you a fine of £110 and a court appearance if you refuse to pay the on-the-spot fine! That’s £30 more than a shoplifter might be fined.

Town hall rubbish police, who already inspect household wheelie bins, have been given the power to hand out punishments for misuse of public recycling bins in streets or parks.
