Saving Money on TrashSubmitted: 02/21/2013
Story By Ryan Michaels

CRANDON - When you throw a trash bag into your garbage bin, you probably DON'T think about how much it costs you.

But the City of Crandon hopes to save money on trash and pass the savings on to residents.

Crandon residents will soon get their own 64-gallon wheeled trash bin and also a 96-gallon wheeled recycle bin.

The new bins will cut down on labor and fuel costs.

That will save the city thousands of dollars and make it look better according to Mayor Rob Jaeger.

"I think its a great win for the tax payers because it saves everybody a little bit of money and now-a-days that's our goal, to try and save money wherever we can save it."

Mayor Jaeger hopes to put the savings into city development. The new trash bins will be dropped off at each residence Monday February 25th. Starting on March 4th trash in Crandon will be picked up on Mondays. Recyclables will be picked up every other week.

ANTIGO - In one way, Antigo Silt Loam isn't all that special.

"The reason the Antigo Silt Loam soil was selected wasn't that it represented the whole state, or exists throughout the whole state, or that it was the most productive," said Matt Ruark, an associate professor in the Soil Science department at UW-Madison.

But in 1983, it was selected as the official Wisconsin state soil for a special reason.

"It was the most uniquely 'Wisconsin,'" Ruark said.
