SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Tired of fighting for space in your trash can for those yard clippings? The Salt Lake City Council may have a solution.
The council is considering offering a new green-waste receptacle. Residents may get a can for about $3.50 a month staring in March of next year.
The council had praise for the program at last night's council meeting, The Salt Lake Tribune reported on its Web edition today.
Refuse put in the organic waste bins would not go to the landfill and would be recycled.
If the program is approved as part of the city's new budget the green waste would be picked up nine months of the year -- taking a break during winter.
