The City Council took a step toward finding a new home for Solag Disposal Co. on Tuesday by unanimously agreeing to exchange six acres along San Juan Creek for Solag's two-acre storage yard in the historic Los Rios district. However, the council did not give permission for Solag to move its trucks, cars and dumpsters to the creekside property. City officials said they would lobby the Board of Supervisors to allow Solag's fleet to move to the Prima Deshecha site off Ortega Highway.

Less than a month after a new 10-year trash contract took effect, the city could be heading for arbitration with Solag Disposal over waste disposal rates. The two sides cannot agree on whether a reduction in county landfill fees should apply to the new contract, which took effect July 1. Under terms of the new contract, the city will appoint the arbitrator. Solag officials said this week that they are waiting for legal advice on whether they should participate in the arbitration process.

It's a disgrace to California's oldest neighborhood, a group of angry neighbors told the City Council. The group demanded the council clean up a trash hauler's storage yard, which the residents say has become a smelly, rat-infested eyesore in the picturesque 18th-Century Los Rios Historic District, only a block from Mission San Juan Capistrano. "This is the most-photographed, most-painted, most-visited neighborhood in town," said Frances Kennedy Perguson, a 10-year Los Rios resident.

The puppet show, sponsored by Solag Disposal and the cities of San Clemente, Dana Point, Laguna Niguel and San Juan Capistrano, was designed to teach students about the value of recycling. The program at Dana Point Youth and Group Facility was a preview for principals who might want to schedule it at their schools. "It was very good," said Judy Shades, head of R.H.
