where our trash goes, either into landfill or the ocean or recycled, is a serious problem.  it has been designed here in the northwest to work if people start sorting when they put it at the curb. consequences must be imposed on those who want to be oblivious to this public hygiene problem. the right to privacy of their trash is a red herring.  there is no right to the privacy of a turd left in public.   

civilization does impose limits on the freedom of an individual ... there is, however, a tug-of-war, and it finds a balance.  i believe, those who want to be oblivious to sorting their trash are on the wrong side of that balance.  hopefully the courts in Seattle will judge with me on the side of our public consciousness of what happens to our waste. 
People in Seattle apparently are leaving turds around in public. Does anyone follow them &/or their dogs around - bag & tag the turds & fine the owners of such & send the bags to the recycler?
Is that a minimum wage job or ?

well if that is to be the quality of discourse on this item, then any further serious response by me would feel like i stepped in your dog's shit.  hopefully you have enough public consciousness to voluntarily clean up such shit. 
Appartently you lost your sense of humor ages ago & only know how to call people liars & take a dump on it.

Another way that I  look at it is that once I consider something garbage - you can have it.  I don't get the money from recycling.  If you want it you do the sorting. I already pay to have you cart it away.  Not enough jobs? Sort some garbage; compost some spoiled food & feel special about doing it. (or not)

BTW what they do here is charge a flat fee per size container for the general garbage & free containers for recyclable & yard waste like plants tree limbs etc. (;-))
& they don't inspect your garbage.  It gets sorted  on conveyer belts at the dumping station.  Large Items I can take to the dump (sorted in different piles) myself & pay a fee per truckload. No trash police here.

Did you ever check out the numbers
I did not. 

But i have visited all of the facilities (i have pictures if necessary) and can see the scale of the problem and the solutions that are working and where it can be broken.  Trust me when i tell you that landfill is not the solution ... and sans your sort, your shit necessarily goes there.  This problem is not just "phonied up".  Check it out.
Yep, anyway we do it better in Paradise without the trash police! It still gets composted, sorted & recycled.

Well there are lots of different solutions ... Spokane is even playing with a plant where trash is turned into power.  Different areas have different solutions.  A larger metropolitan area creates a vast mound of waste every single day.  A small town, creates a more manageable one.  All over the country many solutions are being tried.  At some point i have to trust the ecology engineers and my gut perceptions of how waste flows.  There are plenty of examples of where a system goes wrong and a ugly soar and it's consequences appear in our environment.  Being oblivious to the pain, will not heal the soar ... no, it will just allow decay to take over. 
Becoming a Nazi secret policeman is NOT & NEVER the answer at ALL!
