Town praised for trash compliance

Taneytown City Manager Joseph A. Mangini Jr. said 96 percent of the city's residents have complied with the trash ordinance that officials have recently begun to enforce.

The ordinance requires that trash placed on curbs for disposal must be in metal or plastic containers.

"I went through every street in town Thursday morning and I was impressed," Mr. Mangini said. "Only 50 out of the 1,373 units under contract to Haden Trash Removal were not in compliance with the law."

The city last week began enforcing the law that has been on the books since the early 1970s.

Mr. Mangini said the city would not be giving out warnings for the next two weeks in the hope that the 4 percent "will join their neighbors in obeying the law."
