If this a change of business request, won't their parking lot have to be brought up to code?

City now strongly considering adding glass to proposed curbside recycling program

I don't mind the recycling, but "can" the large "can" idea.

that's how i feel. i keep my trash can in my garage and just do not have any more room for another, as does a lot of home owners. A lot of these are going to wind up outside along the house, that sure will look good for residential areas. I hope they will let you pay and just not have to take the trash can

What I have a problem with is as a 1 person household I do not need a 95 gal. I would empty it about twice a year. They at least need to offer the smaller trash can.
Another concern is all the trash cans that will be setting outside each home throughout Lawrence, won't that look great. Plastic art for all....

NEW YORK (AP) -- Home-improvement retailer Lowe's Cos. said Monday it will close 20 underperforming stores in 15 states and cut 1,950 jobs in order to focus on more profitable locations.

Ten locations were closed Sunday; the other 10 will close in a month. They include three closings in New Hampshire and two each in California, Illinois and Maine.

Before the closures, Lowe's operated 1,725 stores.

Lowe's, based in Mooresville, N.C., also said it will only open 10 to 15 stores in North America annually beginning in 2012. Previously the company expected to open 30 stores per year. It will open 25 stores this year.

Lowe's said the moves will cost it 17 cents to 20 cents per share in its current fiscal year.

In August, Lowe's said volatile weather and shoppers' worries about the economy hurt demand. Its net income was nearly flat in the second quarter and the company lowered its yearly sales forecast, saying it expected net income of $1.48 to $1.54 per share in its fiscal year ending Feb. 3.

The company's results have been pressured as consumers continue to stick to home renovation products under $500. In August the company said it was closing 7 stores and eliminating 650 associated jobs.
