CCTV of three men tipping over wheelie bins in York has been viewed over 20,000 times.
City of York Council released the footage to make people "think again before acting irresponsibly".
The men were walking down Gillygate in York around 2:30am on Tuesday 7th January when they started throwing rubbish around.
Police turned up and made the trio clear up the mess they had made.
Councillor Linsay Cunningham-Cross from City of York Council spoke to ITV Tyne Tees.
