I got fined $100 for putting my trash out too early. And not all the trash. Just the recyclable cans and bottles.
I thought I was doing the can-pickers a favor by giving them a few more hours of daylight to pick out can and bottles for the 5-cent deposit. I got the ticket at 3:30pm. They shouldn't go out before 5pm.
$20 would have taught me a lesson. $100 is real money.
And if I had known I was going to get fined, I would have put out all my trash to at least get my money's worth!
