Create Zero Waste and Get Sued by the City
A 53-year-old man in San Carlos, California has done what all of wish we could do: create zero waste, so that he no longer needs municipal trash service. Eddie House explains,
"It's just me and my dog, so I don't have a whole lot of garbage to begin with and I recycle everything." When Eddie canceled his trash service, the city of San Carlos served him with a lawsuit.
According to the Examiner
The lawsuit claims House broke the city's municipal code requiring all residential, commercial and industrial properties to contract with Allied Waste for pickup at least once a week -- a standard requirement in most cities, San Carlos Deputy City Manager Brian Moura said.
