    Councils gone mad.

    Right, I got an infringement notice off the council today because guess what?!

    I put a Tim tam packet in the recycle bin.....

    So the driver had to stop the truck, get out, fill in the form and apply it...

    It's cost them more to do that than it costs to divert the offending plastic package at the recycle center...

    FML they'll hear about it tomorrow too....

    Up here people putting engine blocks in recycling was apparently so common that they had to run an ad campaign which specifically mentioned you cant put them in recycling bins

    Tell them that recycling is obviously too hard so you will not do it anymore.

    It does make you wonder.... Ffs the outer is plastic too, it's not outside the realms of logic to recycle that too....

    It's like taking old furniture and clothes to the salvos, they only want new stuff.
