If you're in Wales, you may end up being arrested if you attempt to recycle! http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/wales/north_east/7413434.stm "An environmental campaigner has been arrested for taking four plastic chairs from a recycling centre. Genny Bove, 46, from Wrexham, said the chairs were dumped in a general rubbish skip and were due to go to a landfill site rather than being recycled. She is on bail, but called it a "waste of police time and resources". Wrexham Council said "rooting through skips" was dangerous and banned, but it would not press charges. North Wales Police confirmed it was investigating. In a statement sent to police, Ms Bove admitted taking the four garden chairs on 2 May from the Brymbo Household Recycling Centre at Lodge in Wrexham." Sometimes I shake my head in disbelief at what the boys in blue will arrest folk for these days. The cynic in me says that's an easy arrest to keep meeting some target or other..
