Green Police: Miami Beach To Make Recycling Compulsory, Up To $2,500 Fine For Violations

Paul Joseph Watson

Audi’s infamous ‘Green Police’ Superbowl commercial may not be far off coming to fruition. Miami Beach has passed an ordinance that makes recycling compulsory from July 2013, with those who fail to comply under threat of fines up to $2500 dollars.

“People, who live in the city of Miami Beach, must soon recycle or possibly face fines,” reports

“Once the ordinance goes in effect in July 2013, people who don’t recycle would be fined $350 for their first violation, $500 for their second violation and $1,000 for the third violation.”

The Miami Herald reports that the fine for a fourth violation would total $2500.

Mandatory recycling ordinances represent another example of how big government is exploiting the environmental movement to increase regulation and big brother snooping on Americans’ private lives.

Local authorities across the U.S. are using cutting edge technology to spy on the contents of people’s trash cans and issue them with fines for non-compliance.

“In a growing number of cities across the U.S., local governments are placing computer chips in recycling bins to collect data on refuse disposal, and then fining residents who don't participate in recycling efforts and forcing others into educational programs meant to instill respect for the environment,” reports Fox News.

Such programs are already in place in major cities such as Charlotte, N.C., Cleveland, Ohio, Boise, Idaho, and Flint, Michigan.

In Cleveland, people who fail to recycle are flagged by the RFID chip embedded in their trash can, added to a database and then targeted by green cops who are dispatched to intimidate homeowners.

If a resident fails to bring their recycling cart to the curb for as little a period as three weeks, a “trash supervisor” rummages through their regular trash to check if the resident is throwing away recyclable materials (glass, metal cans, plastic bottles, paper and cardboard). If the regular trash can contains more than 10% of these items, a $100 dollar fine is immediately issued.

“We’re going to run reports on who this particular truck picked up from today and if it indicates on a consistent basis that your household hasn’t been recycling, then we have officers that I will send out "¦ to check and see what’s going on,” Waste Collection Commissioner Ronnie Owens told ABC News.

Back in December, Washington DC resident Patricia White was fined $2,000 dollars by the Department of Public Works for throwing homemade cat litter in her trash. The inspector admitted to literally digging through White’s trash in order to issue the ticket.

Harvard University computer science professor and privacy expert Harry Lewis warns that the nationwide effort to keep tabs on the contents of people’s trash betrays the fact that the government views the American people as livestock.

“It’s treating people like cattle!” said Lewis. Are people “supposed to produce recyclable waste, rather than certain quantities of milk”? What, he asked, happens if you don’t generate enough?

67159 Yyyyyeahhh...good luck with that. But hey, if people want to continue taking it, it's on them. Government keeps dishing it out, and the people keep taking it. So who's really to blame? The American people are their own worst enemy.
