It was mentioned to me that in Seneca Falls, one has to use white trash bags and if one uses the darker ones like green or black, you can get fined. This sounds really dumb. Has anyone heard of this?

Some other towns do have this. but I do not believe Seneca Falls is one of them.

I have heard of places that require clear bags so the contents can be seen. I think this happens in places where they are really big on recycling. It allows them to see if plastics, metals, etc. are being discarded.

aces it`s an old joke .It started as being said you had to use CLEAR so the pickers could see what was inside so they wouldn`t tear them open and leave crap all over IT`s a joke.

I see. The garbage truck that comes is the one where no one gets out and grabs and dump the trash in the truck. It is the lift that picks the can up. So.... they can not see what bags are in the trash bin. This is at the house we just bought in S/F. The person who told me this was serious as a heart attack. Anyway, I like to come here and ask all you wise people when things do not sound right. Thanks all.

ik u can get fined for putting things like paint cans and other stuff in your garbage.. I would think this is the only reasoning behind this, but i too have heard of this.
