The city of Houston will no longer pick up yard trash that is not in city approved bags. Earlier this month the city switched to biodegradable bags for leaves and other yard trimmings. They gave people a few weeks to get the bags. Now city workers will no longer pick up trash in unauthorized bags.

People who do not use the bags can also receive a fine of up to $2,000.
