Eric Pickles on wheelie bin fines legislation in 2013
Legislation will be brought in to stop councils fining people for putting bins out on the wrong day, the communities secretary revealed.
Eric Pickles said that given the "unreasonable nature of these charges" the government would block the fines sometime in 2013.
He said it was "ludicrous" to fine people for putting yoghurt pots in the wrong bin, or putting bins on the wrong part of the pavement.
