    Bringing evil to justice *possibly*

    Although it might be important shouldn't the council be targeting bigger fish.

    'Wrong' recycling accused bailed

    Donna Challice denies six charges
    A Devon mother-of-three accused of failing to recycle household waste properly has appeared in court.
    Donna Challice, 30, of Wonford, Exeter, is being prosecuted for contaminating recyclable rubbish under the Environmental Protection Act.

    She denies six charges brought by Exeter City Council in what is thought to be the first case of its kind.

    A pre-trial review was held on Monday and the case adjourned by Cullompton magistrates until 10 July.

    The offences of putting food waste into recycling bins are alleged to have taken place on 2 and 16 November 2005, 30 and 14 December 2005, and 8 and 22 February 2006.

    She faces a possible fine of 1,000 and court costs if found guilty.

    Under the Environmental Protection Act, local authorities have the power to specify how people separate their waste, which bin it should be placed in and which day it will be collected.

    It's easier to punish a mother of three than it is to harass drug dealers.

    There's something not right here. Spending all that money bringing her to court for putting abit of food into a recycling container, Just proves her Councill has nothing better to do with there time them badger mothers, And that Goverments around the world are Idiots for letting it get this far.

    Having seen her on local TV being interviewed about this. I'm glad she was prosecuted. She's the type, that if any of you ever stopped her for a motoring offence, she'd definitely get the ticket.

    So this very well could've been an "attitude" charge then?

    Hehee, she either pissed off the neighbors, or she's one of those "chronics" that pissed off the whole block.

    I see, shes probably done something to annoy the council or other local residents.
