It seems that a Georgia law case made national news recently. In the Atlanta suburb of Sandy Springs, a garbage collector began his route at 5:00 a.m. – – two hours before a Sandy Springs ordinance specified that trash collection could begin.
According to FindLaw.com, the worker was a recent employee of the waste management company. The Sandy Springs residents had complained about early morning trash pick-ups that woke them up, and an ordinance limited the hours of pick up from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
The waste management employee was surprised to discover that he’d earned a 30-day jail sentence and also a period of probation – – punishment for arriving early for his job.
