Thank you, Tacoma Solid Waste, for your new biweekly garbage service and food waste recycling. The garbage can no longer has an odor problem as all the food waste now goes into the yard waste container. Any odor that may be caused by the addition food waste to yard waste is easily fixed by covering the food waste with grass clippings or a few leaves.

I vote to implement the program citywide as soon as possible.

Keep up the good work and keep looking for ways to cut operating costs and improve the environment.
