More RFID Rubbish

The London suburb of Croyden must figure that you are what you eat. The local council has announced that it will be putting microchips into their "new wheelie bins." The goal seems to be to allow the council to determine whether residents are producing too much rubbish. If they are, they will get advice on how they might "manage their rubbish more effectively." According to a local conservative assemblyman, "The Stasi or the KGB could never have dreamed of getting a spying device in every household." Big Brother will be watching.
