Debra Dausy: Keep trash out of green waste cans in Modesto

March 17, 2014 

I have recently bought several truck loads of mulch from the city of Modesto. It appears very rich and nice. The prices they charge are very reasonable. I have one complaint: There are a lot of little pieces of glass in the mulch. The city is able to sort out much of the garbage people put in the green cans, but glass appears to be a problem to remove.

People who use green cans really need to be more careful what they put in the green bins. Only green waste should go in the cans. Please put trash in the trash. Recycling of green waste is a wonderful thing, but we must all be responsible to help out. No garbage in the green cans!
