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.
