“When I said I didn’t know about the law I was told that ignorance of the law is not an excuse.”

     Question:  I found out that I couldn’t throw away paint cans in the trash the hard way.  I received a citation and the paint cans back.  I told the person handing me the citation that I didn’t realize there was such a law.  I just moved into a place with two roommates and we are all just now 18 years old.  When I said I didn’t know about the law, I was told that ignorance of the law is not an excuse.  What does that mean exactly, and why am I in trouble for something I knew nothing about?
