HURON

As the F.S.I. Disposal truck proceeded down residential streets, two workers tipped cans and paper bags full of waste into its bed.

Most of it was winter's detritus -- leaves, branches, lawn clippings -- but every once in a while, there were potatoes or carrot peelings mixed in.

Two weeks into Huron's residential food recycling program -- the first of its kind in the state -- participation isn't widespread.

But program leaders hope that with more education and outreach, recycling "green waste" will catch on and become a lifelong habit for younger Huron residents.
