In July 2008, the City of Olympia added food waste to its existing residential yard trimmings green cart service, increasing curbside organics tonnages by about 400 tons/year to reach 4,000 tons/year. The program is voluntary, with the choice of a 95-gallon or 35-gallon green cart, and biweekly collection. The City had a pretty intensive outreach program with the roll-out last year, says Ron Jones, Senior Program Specialist, Olympia's Public Works office. They had neighborhood meetings, multiple mailers, a customer survey, pail deliveries, site visits, and promotions on the Internet, local public television and newspaper.
