Diversion of yard waste out of the landfill and into city compost would be introduced incrementally if  Casper City Council passes an ordinance that heard first reading Tuesday. City officials describe it as voluntary, though once implemented you would not be allowed to dump grass clippings and other yard waste into the regular dumpster.

Councilman Charlie Powell noted, “Removing yard waste from our landfill will substantially extend the life of our land fill and it will save us a fair amount of money over the long term.”

City Manager, John Patterson outlined the proposal that would be introduced one trash route per year over the next five years beginning with Thursday’s route. Participants would pay $10 for a yard waste bin to be collected weekly.

Those not participating would need to mulch or compost at home or bring yard waste to the bale fill themselves.
