Workers Have To Put Out Own Garbage

rash Workers Have To Put Out Own Garbage

About 20,000 Texas state workers will have to put out their own trash starting this week. The basic idea is to increase recycling — and to save money. It’s the “Mini-Max” program complete with one-gallon trash boxes called “Mini-Bins.” Some state agencies are exempt from the do-it-yourself trash rule, including those at the State Capitol. The Greening Austin Daily says the state expects to save $1 million a year.
