Undercover Cops Monitor When Your Trash Goes Out


A local council in London is paying plainclothes officers £30,000 pounds ($60,000) a year to track down homeowners who take out their trash at the wrong time.
. . .
Citizens say city government is being too heavy-handed in its approach to trash collection rules.

"We are living in a world where everything we do is watched and regulated," said Christine Melsom, founder of a group that campaigns for council-tax reform. "George Orwell has arrived. If you go to work early it is difficult to get it right with the rubbish."
