No Garbage in Trash Cans— Seriously
Published: October 24, 2012
At its October 22nd meeting, the city council passed a bill “prohibiting that disposal of garbage, waste, and other matter, other than litter, into public trash receptacles located on or along any sidewalk.” The bill defines “litter” as “small amounts of paper, beverage containers, glass, garbage, or other waste that: (1) weigh less than 1 pound; (2) comprise less than 1 cubic foot; and (3) are not toxic, noxious, or otherwise a threat to the public health or safety.”
So, no couches. Diapers? I guess it depends on how heavy the situation is. Violation can be a $1,000 fine and 90 days in the stir.
