Wheelie Bin Stickers

I'm very confused. A dead baby is found in a recycling center. That's happened before. But then the authorities issue "wheelie bin stickers" as a response. Did they look like this?

Frank--I saw indeed that the stickers were seeking further info, but sought to emphasize the dumb nature of such a medium. Why permanent stickers affixed to the bins, if such they were? Why not just fliers handed out at the local market or town hall or hospital? The tactic reflected some bizarre notion that the perp must return to the wheelie bin, or that other wheelie bin users would have particular insight into the problem. So I exaggerated deliberately.

And in any case, surely you know that "dead babies" are an immemorial humor category?

Just my thought, Patty. I've got over 100 of those things collected over the years. Here's a mild one.
