Sound off: Decorating trash cans


<b>Since everyone has standardized trash cans now, can people decorate their own trash cans? Is the city going to fine people for individualizing?</b>

While the city appreciates the creativity of our community, trash carts should not be decorated or altered in any way. Trash carts are the property of the city of Lawrence. Each trash cart should stay at the address to which it was delivered. The city is responsible for the maintenance and repair of the trash carts. However, the city will charge the owner or occupant a fee for any necessary repair or replacement due to the owner’s or occupant’s abuse, misuse or neglect of the cart. The replacement fee for each trash cart is $50.00. The city’s trash carts are under full warranty for a period of 10 years. This warranty does not cover cart alterations.
