Champaign’s new yard waste collection and recycling program will keep some farm animals warm this winter and also save the city thousands of dollars in recycling costs alone. Under the program, two full-time temporary workers collect yard waste bags and take them to the public works facility. Then, the bags are loaded onto farmer Rob Wood’s trucks and hauled to his farm in Champaign County, where they are used as livestock bedding and later as fertilizer, the News Gazette reports.
