The City of Pocatello is accepting more participants for its yard waste collection effort.
After placing all residents who were on the waiting list for the Compost Happens program, the City has openings for 45 new members. With the new additions, the total number of participants stands at 700 up from 600.
“The City started this program in 2013 and it has proved to be popular,” said Debbie Brady, Recycling Coordinator for the City of Pocatello. “We’re happy to be expanding it and also extremely pleased that more and more residents are deciding to utilize ecofriendly options when it comes to waste disposal.”
The remaining openings will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis and residents who opt-in to the program will receive a 96 gallon autocart with a brown lid for curbside pickup service. Pickups will be on Wednesday or Thursday, depending on location, with the first set to happen April 6 and 7. The cost is $5 per month and residents will see the charge included on their City of Pocatello utility bill.
