Throwing your litter into the wrong street bin will risk an on-the-spot fine and criminal convictions, ministers said yesterday.
Town hall rubbish police, who already inspect household wheelie bins, have been given the power to hand out punishments for misuse of public recycling bins in streets or parks.
Ignoring the new rubbish regulations by, for example, putting crisp packets into bins meant for glass, or ice cream wrappers into bins for cans, will bring financial penalties and the risk of a court appearance if they are not paid.

See I live in Yorkshire - in the Huddersfield area, and work in Bradford and it doesn't happen there.
My family live in Cheshire, and it doesn't happen there.
So, where exactly is the Dailyscaremonger referring to?
