Washington DC Woman Fined for Not Recycling Cat Litter

Patricia White, a Dupont Circle resident, says that she has been fined eight times for not recycling her homemade cat litter. The fines total $2,000.

Instead of buying cat litter, White has been taking her old newspaper and junk mail and shredding them to make her homemade cat litter. She believed that she was helping the environment by reusing the paper and avoiding cat litter.

According to the Department of Public Works, the inspector who cited and fined White for not recycling her newspaper and junk mail admitted to going through her trash to find violations. White appealed the violations; however, Judge Audrey Jenkins agreed with with the inspectors.
