Mom of 3 Arrested, Jailed for Putting Recycling in Wrong Color Bag?

Sharing is Caring!

A UK mom served time in jail after she put her recycling out in the wrong color bag.

Ipswitch mother-of-three Lyndsey Webb, 34, reportedly used black bags for her recycling, unaware of a new March ordinance requiring her to use orange and clear bags.

In a span of 22 days, she left 60 bags out, according to MetroUK.

Webb was cited for four separate violations of the Environmental Protection Act, but when she failed to show up to an April court hearing she was arrested and detained in a holding cell.

She was also ordered to pay a fine of £50, as prosecutors argued the new changes had been widely publicized, and was “given a six-month conditional discharge,” according to The Daily Mail.
