BuzzFeed A Dumpster In Wales Just Got Warned For Its Bad Parking

Carmarthenshire Council has launched a formal investigation, because you can’t technically issue a parking ticket to a bin.

<h1>This wheelie bin is in trouble – it just received what looked like a parking ticket for being on double yellow lines, in Carmarthen, south Wales.</h1>

It was bizarre – I realised I had just watched a warden give a ticket to a wheelie bin for bad parking.

It appeared the warden slapped the plastic ticket envelope on the bin in a moment of high jinks after a member of public pointed out it was parked on double yellow lines.

<h1>It might be a joke but the council doesn't see the funny side and it's investigating what the warden responsible was up to.</h1>

In one of the more memorable local authority statements of recent times, the council told Wales Online:

There was no ticket issued, it is not possible to book a wheelie bin or anything that is not motorised.

Although this was meant as a humorous incident, we take this kind of thing very seriously and have launched a formal investigation into the conduct of this officer.

Happy to get into the spirit of things, a spokesman for Biffa, which makes this line of bins, said:

The ticket issued was simply a throw-away gesture and proved to be a load of rubbish. We are wheelie careful and do our best to make sure that our bins are in the correct locations at all times.
