To many North County residents, Operation Desert Storm meant the absence of a loved one as thousands of Marines were deployed from Camp Pendleton. To 7,000 Riverside County hogs, it meant going on a diet. In peacetime, the hogs at Standard Feeding Inc. near Ontario had depended on a daily ration of Camp Pendleton garbage.

It started with a couple of environmentally oriented UC San Diego graduates searching for meaning in post-college life. The year was 1983 and the idea they lit upon was this: Why not ask people to pile their cans, bottles and newspapers on the curb and then drive around in a truck and pick them up?

The garbage has hit the fan as far as relations between the cities of San Marcos and Carlsbad go. This is more than just some little political brouhaha; San Marcos feels it has been blind-sided by Carlsbad and is looking to get even. And in the end, bizarre as it sounds, Carlsbad residents may see their trash collection rates skyrocket from $6.50 a month to $50 a month. At issue, in a general sense, is which roads can be used by large, three-axle trucks through the City of Carlsbad.

Mark Beckett always cared about the environment, even though he and his family filled up trash cans at about the same rate as other folks. They recycled newspapers, but not much else. When Solana Recyclers began curbside collection in their neighborhood, though, the Becketts began acting in earnest. In the last year, they have cut their landfill trash output in half.
