Good thing they picked up most (about 99.99%) of the guns in Oz - if those bin cops peering into the garbage bins here at 1am, oh well ...

They're jailing ‘em in the UK - won't be long before it comes here.

They're going after the wrong end of the problem. If they honestly want to cut down on trash - start at the manufacturing end and cut down on the packaging!

And cut down on the plastic...P.E.I. allows no plastic soda bottles, for example. It's in glass bottles that go to be rewashed. Worked for decades.

There is a Canadian soda - JONES - sold in the US that is not only in glass, but made with sugar, instead of the poisonous, ultra weight gaining High Fructose Corn Syrup...

Ditto, an American bottler - Polar Classic - in great old flavors like Orange Cream, Vanilla Cream and Root Beer.

We consumers DO drive the market. Case in point, the super markets now have whole organic sections...

So, if we want something changed - we can do it And we need to head off the garbage can police - tell 'em to start at the other end - or get their ends kicked, maybe with rock salt.

>Residents flouting the rules have warning stickers placed on their bins and risk being slapped with a garbage collection ban.<

So that way the resident would toss their garbage out in someone elses pail. Now there's a great idea from the bureaucrats, if there ever was such a thing.

King County (comprising the greater Seattle Metro area) does the same thing. They supposedly will fine anyone who doesn’t separate their recyclables.

No recent word on whether they’ve actually issued any of the $100 fines yet or not.

I’m intentionally not putting out a recycle bin in order to hopefully get one of these tickets.

If they start that nonsense where I live, I’ll rig my garbage can to surprise ‘em. I’ll start with a “warning shot” in the form of a spring-loaded “snake” that pops out when they open the lid - then move up from there. Bear repellent, anyone?

Cap a few as home invaders and they’ll change their hours.
