I thought dumping rubbish at sea was outlawed some time ago?

Is nowhere safe from these bins. Lets hope no one working for a council picks up on this.
We have windfarms springing up across the country. And that idea also sprung up at sea. We have multiple bins in the gardens across the country, now we see them at sea too. Where will it end?

I wonder what sort of rubbish this bin will have in it? In my area, black bins are for non recyclable items. Maybe in this part of the country, black is for Marine Waste?
