Sunday Telegraph: "Eric Pickles: Bin fines will be scrapped"

Link to web site
"Eric Pickles said it was 'ludicrous' that people can currently be fined for putting their rubbish out on the wrong day, failing to recycle or overfilling their bins.

"Under current rules, council officials can start criminal proceeding resulting in fines of up to £1,000 for ‘household waste offences’.

"Mr Pickles is also expected to tackle on-the-spot penalties of up to £80 for waste offences issued by council 'bin police'."
