The scene resembles an outdoor factory. Big machines whir. Workers, in assembly-line formation, busily sort through mounds of trash, putting items on conveyor belts or into separate piles. And mechanized compactors neatly bind items into bundles for recycling. According to city officials, the scene shows how trash is being recycled in this city of 180,000 people, where residents are not asked to sort refuse before placing it on the curb.

The cash-strapped city has rejected a proposal to reduce residents' trash pickup rates. The City Council voted 4-3 not to pass along savings from a rate reduction by the city's trash hauler, Rainbow Disposal Co., which is benefiting from lower fees at Orange County's landfills. The cut would have been about 46 cents a month for each household. Councilwoman Shirley S. Dettloff spoke against passing along the reduction, noting that the fee already falls short of what the service actually costs.
