Harvey had his finger in my face and I got angry. I can’t remember if I cursed, but I said, ‘Get your finger out of my face,’ and he started shaking his finger and he barely touched my nose.”

The cities of Carmel, Del Rey Oaks, Marina, Monterey, Pacific Grove, Sand City and Seaside, along with the Pebble Beach Community Services District, collaborated with the trash hauler, GreenWaste Recovery, to hire auditors from Blue Strike Environmental to start checking people’s trash, Martelet said.
