Re: Fine from the Police for recycling on the wrong day

I've just received a fine from the Police in relation to using the recycling on the wrong day.

One Sunday, our paper recycling was piling up at home, and so I thought I'd go to our local recycling centre. When I got there, there was a chain around the bins, but they were completely accessible (in our village, there's no barrier), so and the bins were open, so I didn't see any particular harm. So I put the rubbish in and drove off.

Today we get a fine in the post, and the fine is for 250 CHF for

"putting rubbish on the public highway or not sorted in the eco-points" which is not true.

The fine for using the recycling outside normal hours is the same, but the crime is wrong, and it just seems unfair, for what was effectively taking my rubbish to the tip.
Is your car registered in your wife's name?

That's the information that the stasi-neighbour (to the recycling centre) gave to the Police.
They then must have trawled through the waste paper to confirm it.

People have to much time on their hands (which I suppose, in the case of the Police, is a good thing).
