Okay. I called the eco inspector. Bragged about having vertical gardens. Bragged about my container gardens. Convinced to buy a recycler. He did nothing.

 

Then the N.A.P inspector came out. I bragged about my vertical gardens. I bragged about my container plants. (Didn't have an opportunity to brag about my 8 other plants that are just in the ground on my property.) I convinced him to buy a recycler. Now I'm in compliance with the Upcycling N.A.P. But I'm still out of compliance with my garden. Am I missing something?

@pinkcupcakesim Did you test this without mods installed ?

This one sounds similar: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-INPUT-ECO-N-A-P-Energy-Efficient-Appliances-Fines-Despit...

What do you mean by turned off eco life ? Did you turn some of the options off or disabled the pack ?

Upcycling Initiative fines despite not having ANY items

★★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.63.136.1010
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them except for 'My First Pet Stuff'
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Starting a new game, bulldozing a lot, don't place anything except for planting harvestables (I planted 2). Vote for Upcycling Initiative. Wait for the inspector to come.
What happens when the bug occurs? I bulldozed a lot and only planted two harvestables, my Sim also has a bike in her inventory that she found in the trash. The N.A.P. inspector came and inspected my empty lot, with Upcycling Initiative active. He then told me I should expect an increase in bills because I wasn't complying... I don't have any stuff.
What do you expect to see? The Upcycling Initiative should not punish you for not having upcycled/repaired items when you have no items placed.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? No

I wanted to play rags to riches, so I bulldozed a lot and got rid of all my money. My sim only had a bike from the trash, and one union and one of the emotion fruits planted.

N.A.P. inspector paid me a visit after voting in Upcycling Initiative and I got punished for not complying.

Re: [NEEDS INPUT] [ECO] N.A.P. Energy Efficient Appliances Fines Despite Upgrade

I have the same problem. For me it seems like most N.A.P.s that require me to have certain things on my lot are bugged. I mentioned Upcycling Initiative before, but I also have the problem with Energy Efficient Appliances and Green Gardening... I waited several seasons, planted new/more harvestables, but it doesn't matter. I'm still getting higher bills.

I am having the same issue as well (being fined for not complying with gardening) and I have a huge garden.

★★ Guide

One of my households with a huge garden (about 60 plants, indoors, well-tended) got fined for Green Gardening.  I added an insect farm (didn't even add bugs, just the empty box).  Nothing else changed during the week, except a couple of plants evolved.  The next week, they were in compliance (and the week after, with the bug box in inventory, they failed again, so pretty sure that was it).  Some of my households get fined when I think they should be ok, and others don't get fined when I think they're not (one household with only half the plumbing upgraded passed Eco-Friendly; I'm not sure if all their electronics were upgraded either - they have a lot of computers).

 

It would really help if the inspector told us what we had to do to fix it if we fail..
