A city program launched in April has code enforcement officers writing thousands of citations — ranging from $25 to $1,000 — for infractions, including illegal dumping and improper storage of trash in open containers or paper shopping bags. Officials have also fired off letters in East Boston reminding residents about their responsibility to properly dispose of trash and warning that the city is prepared to use everything in its power to go after offenders, including the recent "green ticket" law passed by the state, which allows minor fines such as trash violations to be added on to a building owner’s property tax bills. Many residents have taken it upon themseves to report violations to the City of Boston.
