The city of Seattle has intruded into the lives of its 670,000 residents. This warrantless snooping violates the 4th Amendment to the US Constitution. A mandatory city program allows the checking of individual trash containers to make sure residents are composting or recycling.
Contracted waste haulers have been deputized as trash police, given the authority to tag trash bins when people fail to recycle and compost enough. The trash police insure that more than 10% of visible trash content should have been recycled or put into compost bins, but without opening individual trash bags. The mandatory composting ordinance calls for fines ranging from $1.00 to $50.00. There isn’t an appeals process, because the evidence is hauled away to the landfill. However, lawsuits against the city are in the courts!
Letters were received by Seattle’s Board of Education, Mayor and City Council from a group of anonymous Seattle high school and elementary school students. The students claim that the contracted waste haulers drop their loads of trash and compost at warehouse facilities owned by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). After 2:00AM USDA trucks transport the day’s collected loads via trucks to USDA food processing plants.
Surveillance of various USDA food processing plants has shown government workers repackaging all the eatable trash and compost materials, and then placing them in containers marked “Michelle’s Healthy Eating School Lunch Program” to be used the next day. The letter ends with “we told you that it was garbage in Michelle’s Healthy Eating School Lunch Program!”
