You’ve bin shamed! Council’s ‘petty’ recycling scheme starts putting public notices on rubbish bins if families fill it with the wrong refuse

Council workers have outraged residents by slapping ‘tags of shame’ on their bins in what bosses say is a new initiative to ‘re-educate’ families about recycling.

The row over collections by South Kesteven Council in Lincolnshire has already been branded the ‘bingate’ scandal by leading Tory Michael Gove who demanded an official apology to locals over the fiasco.

People living in the area say the new multi-bin system is too complicated and claim they are running out of room in their gardens after being issued with three separate bins for different types of waste.

As well as the standard black wheelie bin for house-hold waste, households also have a purple bin reserved for paper and cardboard and a silver bin for plastic bottles, glass bottles and foil.

From the start of this week, residents who had failed to fill the two recycling bins with the correct contents were stunned to find bin crews had tied warning labels to their uncollected waste.

The scheme has caused uproar in the community and has been labelled as ‘petty’ by furious locals on social media.
