A woman was left gobsmacked after she received a simple request from her local refuse collectors last month.
The woman, from Hull, explained she was shocked when she received a letter from the Waste Management Team at Hull City Council, asking residents to ensure they are putting their bins out in a very specific way.
The letter was sent on 21 October and asked all residents to be extra mindful when taking their rubbish out for the waste team to collect.
"It has been brought to our attention that bins are being left out with the handles not facing out for the crews. Please ensure all bins are brought and left with handles facing out," the letter read.
Explaining the reasons, the letter continued: "The crews can struggle with moving the bins if they are left the wrong way, which can cause issues with emptying.
"We would like to thank you in advance for your co-operation, helping to keep Hull a clean, tidy and environmentally friendly place to live."
But the woman wasn't impressed, and asked why they couldn't turn them around themselves.
"I was honestly howling when I read it. How on earth does the bin handle facing away mean they can’t empty it – and why can’t they just turn it around?" she told Hull Live.
The resident - who has a disability - added: "They don’t bring back assisted collection bins unless there are signs telling them to, and even then it’s intermittent.
"The letter had no name, just my address, so multiple households will have gotten it – I’m just gobsmacked they have actually sent it."
LADbible has contacted Hull City Council for further details.
This comes after a woman found out she was facing a fine of tens of thousands of pounds after a complaint was made to her local council over the colour of her front door.
Miranda Dickson, who lives in Edinburgh's New Town, had her Georgian front door painted last year with pink Dulux paint as part of a renovation.
But the council has said it is not 'in-keeping with the appearance of the building' and have asked her to repaint it with white gloss.
Miranda is facing a £2,000 fine unless she complies with the request, and could also be fined a further £20,000 if she is charged with breaching rules within a conservation area.
