Curbside yard waste collection program proving popular


Dauphin’s new yard waste program is a hit.
In fact the voluntary initiative to keep compostable material out of the waste stream has proven so popular, the city is holding a second intake in preparation of ordering additional green rolling bins.
The initial order of 1,250 bins has been distributed and Dauphin director of Public Works and Operations, Bill Brenner, said the response to the initiative has been overwhelming.
“We are very pleased. We knew that once they were out and people saw them on the street that we were going to get a few more people looking for them, but we never envisioned that this many people would want them,” he said.
