Organic Monitor Larry Rosalez sorts through organic material picked up by the City of San Antonio Solid Waste Department at the New Earth Soils and Compost facility at 7800 East IH-10, Tuesday, August 18, 2015. Rosalez takes out inorganics, such as plastics and bottles, from the material that is turned into compost. The city is offering its residents lower rates for garbage service by letting them recycle more of their waste for a lower bill under a program called, "Pay as You Throw". Residents have the option of cutting their solid waste collection fee by choosing a smaller garbage bin and recycling more items.
