    Ahh yes. It`s jolly good to see that the rubbish Nazis are alive and well.

    I say we burn people who throw glass bottles in the general litter bins as well!

    Note to Town Council: Placing TWO pieces of junk mail in a trash bin does NOT count as "dumping." Half-baked nut-breads.

    Unfortunately we do have them as well as health and safety idiots who say you should wear goggles while playing conkers. Idiots!

    conkers is a traditional game played with the seed of a horsechestnut tree. Basically you attach one to a piece of string (as does your opponent) and you take it in turns to smack them at each other. The winner is the surviving `conker`. Stupid game really. :P

    oops, sorry....should have been `smack them at each others conker`...though usually people do end up hitting each other - hence the goggles. :)

    I read about this when it happened. Council Megalomaniacs. You give any retard a fraction of power and he thinks he rules the world. Like that ambulance driver a year or two back who triggered a speed camera while taking a heart attack patient to hospital, and got a 120 quid fine.

    Oh yeah, and conkers is a terribly lethal game *end sarcasm*

    News from way back in March!

    And to those going on about the English or "Europeans" being retarded or whatever, we arent ALL like that. The reason it made news is because its completely stupid and everyone else here in the UK generally thinks its stupid too!

    "Our litter bins are there to keep streets tidy, as they enable
    the public to deposit small amounts of litter. They are not
    provided for household waste.``

    translation:

    our garbage bins aren`t meant to be used! that`s retarded! they`re there to trick people into thinking people use them and because it looks nice. how dare you throw garbage in a garbage can!!! you non-nice individual! why didn`t you throw it onto the ground instead?!

    According to the town council, there`s a problem with people taking their household garbage and putting it in the street trash can? Doesn`t that tell you that either the household trash or street trash pickup is not happening often enough. Either it all falls back on the town council for not providing enough services and then blaming someone else

    Woot45, in the case of hobos vomiting in trash cans, that`s perfectly legal by these standards. The streets are their homes and "domestic refuse" would include their vomit.

    At any rate, I can understand why the council made that particular bit of legislation and I agree with it. They`re basically saying you can`t put any of your own trash in there, regardless the quantity. The 50 pound fee was established as a deterrent, lest some of you think it steep.
