Sound Off: What will happen to yard waste under the city’s new plans for trash?

Megan Gilliland, the city’s communications manager, provided this information: There are no proposed changes to the city’s yard trimmings collection program at this time. Residents may continue to set out yard trimmings (grass, leaves and woody debris) in cans, city carts or compostable paper bags by 6 a.m. on Mondays, March through mid-December, for composting. Brush placed in these containers should not protrude more than one foot above the container opening or exceed 65 pounds. Bundled brush is not accepted for curbside collection on Mondays.

It's recyclable so put it in your recycle bin. In fact, since most garbage is recyclable in one way or another, I intend to put all my garbage in the recycle bins for them to sort through. That should cut down on my garbage bill considerably when we start weighing our trash. And the best part is that by recycling all of it, I'll be doing my part by helping to save the planet!

Well, I'm feeling somewhat superior right now. I think I'll head downtown to buy myself an overpriced pretentious beverage and act smugly towards towards everyone else because I'm better than all those trashy people.
