City Sends Garbage Man To Jail For Taking Out Trash Before 7AM (VIDEO)

 

Trash collector Kevin McGill (See VIDEO Below) was sentenced February 5, 2015 for violating the city’s noise ordinance. McGill was running his trash collection route at 5 a.m. The ordinance prohibits collecting prior to 7 a.m. He appeared in Municipal Court with his employer Feb 20. His employer told the solicitor McGill had been suspended for violating the ordinance, which is against company practice. Mr. McGill agreed to a plea deal, which included a 30-day prison sentence, which he could serve on the weekends.

UPDATE: Sandy Springs Garbage Man's Jail Sentence Reduced after Public Outcry and Outrage

In a statement Monday, the Sandy Springs Solicitors Office and its Municipal Court announced it is reducing the sentence to time served and probation because this was a first offense. McGill has already served two weekends in jail as part of his sentence.

“There are times when taking a step back provides the opportunity for better perspective,” the statement read. “In retrospect, the actions of the court with regards to Mr. McGill’s sentence for violating the city’s noise laws, was disproportionate to a first-time offense. As such, the court has amended its sentence to time served and further probation suspended.

"City ordinances are implemented for the protection of quality of life within a community. The adherence to these laws is important, and the city is obligated to enforce these laws, which includes imposing sanctions against those individuals who break the law.”
