And why not have a trash hotline? A sticker for extra bags is cheap--and recycling everything you possibly can is cheaper and really does make a difference in the amount of trash you end up putting out. Do you really think it is OK for someone to put trash in front of someone else's house? And would you not complain if this was done to you? I'm pretty sure I would!
