Don’t they just love telling us that something is “illegal”?
We creep ever closer to an Authoritarian State.
What do they fucking expect? They hand over garbage collection to private companies who charge through the nose and then moan when we make our own alternative arrangements?
I am intrigued at the bit where they are going to demand proof as to how we dispose of our waste and what company we use! How in the name of all that’s holy are we supposed prove that? Will it satisfy them if I have an account with some firm or other but continue to dump my stuff at the roadside?
As it happens, we produce very little in the way of garbage here at Head Rambles Manor. A load of it goes into recycling as that is free. Some goes into an occasional “black bin” [i.e. general rubbish] that I put out once a month or less. The rest goes into compost, over the garden wall or into the landfill. If they want to know about that, they can fucking whistle. I ain’t telling.
The problem with modern society is that laws are becoming ever more restrictive, so we are ever more likely to break the damn things. They cannot seem to fathom the intricacies, or even the simplicities of cause and effect. They cannot seem to understand that if people are banned from doing something, or if it is made prohibitively expensive that we will then make our own alternative arrangements.
I think I’ll take my next load of rubbish and dump it in the local council offices, where they can damn well get rid of it.
After all, it’s what I’m paying them for.
