Lucia Rubbish obsessiveness in Wellington

A Wellington family narrowly avoided a $400 fine for putting glass in their recycling bin on the wrong week because of an offensive note written by one of the men who collects recycling.

It sounds to me like recycling in Wellington is becoming more trouble than it's worth. If I lived there, I'd probably just start throwing all my recycling into my weekly bin rather than risking being fined for putting the wrong items out each week.

Local councils are completely out of control.

Cowardly and petty tyrants who are due some strong push back from the citizenry.

Even with push back, they still carry on regardless. For instance, up here in Kapiti they are trying to put in water meters in order to catch all those leaks on private property. Problem is, just about all of the leaks, and pretty major ones at that, are on council land. The councillors even admit that if there were an election today they would all be turfed out. Doesn't seem to stop them, however.

The family needs to send the Council a fine of $500 for leaving offensive notes on the recycle bin.

Offensive notes must be delivered in an envelope through the letterbox, not attached to the bin.
