... the bin lorry on the right also on double yellows, this is not a one off just because it was bin day...]
Does your council not have a "How's My Driving Scheme" .. you know - phone this number if you thing my driving is poor. Mine has and I've used it because the bin lorries were driving down the bus lanes all the time when they shouldn't have.
It worked - next day (and ever since) they were all sat in the traffic queue like the rest of us.
If its a public body they will take notice - COMPLAIN - get even rather than get mad. Works even better if you are a local rate payer.
The Council decide were to put the lines / bus lanes / box junctions etc. They should be the first to obey them, they have no general exemption to the law only in very specific circumstances.
