Sylvester - - Some people who live in Worth county say a new garbage pick-up policy stinks.

This week, the county began enforcing it's yellow sticker program. Residents must have a yellow sticker on their garbage can or their trash wont be picked up.

In order to get the sticker you have to pay outstanding fines. Some people say they never knew they had delinquent payments, and now they're not getting service until they pay them.

 "If I owed them how come they hadn't notified me before I payed a year at a time?" says Sylvester resident Margaret McDonald. 

"I'm not saying this worked 100 percent, I'm saying this eliminated a lot of problems in people paying on their accounts," says Clerk Frances Nichols.

County officials say some people were getting away with free garbage pick-up and people who moved were having problems transferring their service.

They hope the new system will fix those problems.
