Not everybody saves food scraps for composting.  And Eugene will soon start a trial run for the people who don't: curbside food waste pickup. 

1500 households will be included in the now business-only "Love Food Not Waste" program. 

Stephanie Scafa is the Waste Prevention and Green Building Analyst for Eugene Recycles; she visits with details of the program's trial run.
