The recycling nazi’s in Swansea have prosecuted a man for putting a letter in with his glass recycling. He denied putting the piece of junk mail in the bag but despite having no evidence that he did, the council managed to obtain a conviction resulting in a £100 fine and £100 costs.
In April he was given a warning for putting his bins out a day early because he was going on holiday and then in June he was summonsed for putting a letter in a bag of glass recycling.
Since getting the summons he has refused to recycle. Full marks to the Swansea recycling nazi’s for actually damaging their recycling programme. As the newly-criminalised Mr Reeves said “People are not going to recycle if they end up in court and it costs them £200.”
