Starting this July, Seattle will begin fining residents who put food waste into their garbage cans. For now, they're putting red tags on the garbage cans of "violators", but come July 1, they're going to start cracking down - just in time for Independence Day celebrations.
No word yet as to whether their Green Police get to ride the cool electric scooters. In any case, Seattle becomes the first city in the USA to punish residents for not properly sorting their garbage. What a feather in their cap!
Seems like an easy way to get back at that annoying neighbor, though.
