Household garbage in public trash cans
From CBS 2:
The Sanitation Department has a platoon of enforcement agents tasked with enforcing litter basket laws. Their duties even include doing detective work on trash suspected of being illegally dumped.
“What the enforcement agent will do, occasionally, they’ll come to a bag. They’ll open up the bag and see if they can find something with an address and we try and address the situation,” Sanitation supervisor Joe Delfino said.
During the past year, the Sanitation Department issued around 2,000 summonses for improper use of a city litter basket.
I like how the reporter explains how to avoid detection at the end. That was helpful.
