Homemade Cat Litter Earns a Fine
A Dupont Circle woman has been fined a total of $2,000 for throwing away her homemade (shredded paper) cat litter in her trash can, reports DC’s Fox 5. A Department of Public Works (DPW) inspector has dug through her trash — part of the job — and found the paper along with “other paper items” that should be recycled. And the Director of DPW has stood behind the inspector’s actions and fines, despite protests from DC Councilmember Jack Evans. Evans argues DPW has gone too far in rifling through trash of apartment and condominium owners, and as much as I love the earth… I have to say I agree with him.
