Please see the video for additional details not included in the article...apparently this is the first case of it's kind to be brought in Great Britain and other city governments are watching the matter closely, as the outcome will set a precedent and may cause other similar prosecutions to move forward.

My city has a $300 fine for putting the wrong thing in recycling. You are also supposed to wash everything going in the bin and you aren't permitted to put it in a plastic bag before you put it in the bin, even though the plastic bag is recyclable. They haven't fined me yet. I refuse to wash that which is refuse.

She should plead "inanity!"
What was she thinking? She could have destroyed the environment!
This is very serious.

I think the death penalty is warranted if she is found guilty. It's for the environment, after all.

Stone her! Islam demands it.
It typically takes each household one hour a week to follow these regulations on sorting the trash.

It is on the economic costs of the British recycling program and demonstrates that recycling schemes are, almost without exception, a gross waste of time, money and effort.

I think sorting recycled materials into the correct bins is much more effective when you have people like "Terry Tate, Office Linebacker" supervising...:)

What a waste (no pun intended). I throw everything into the garbage. Consumer recycling is a huge waste of time and resources. That's why all those "green" products in stores are so expensive. If it were profitable, we wouldn't need government coercion to force people into it.

She's lucky she wasn't shot multiple times in the head. We have to keep these upity citizens under control!

Oh, my old man's a dustman,
He wears a dustman's hat,
He wears cor-blimey trousers
And he lives in a council flat.
He looks a proper nana
In his great big hobnail boots,
He's got such a job to pull them up
That he calls 'em daisy roots. "

I live just outside the Seattle city limits, which means I have narrowly avoided having to abide by their insane recycling laws and associated penalties for infractions. Recycling is a fraud.

Investigate this, probably the local mayor cross contaminated her trash in the dark of night so as to seize her property on which the mayor's brother intends to open a porn shop.

I toured a soon-to-be operational plant near Philadelphia around 10 years ago. It processed garbage and using high-tech mechanical and chemical processes to efficiently sort all the recyclables and dispose (burn) mush of the real waste.
The technology's getting better and better, and yet we get asked to sort more.
