Cleveland officials say they’ve starting handing out $100 fines to people who don’t deal with their trash and recycling properly.

Starting Wednesday, the city is writing citations for residents who mix trash with recycling or leave garbage outside of trash cans.

Michael Cox is the city’s director of public works. He said improper handling of waste is costing the city time and money.
