Every Waste Management employee ends a conversation with “Have a Green Day,” but after talking to a customer representative last week, I was seeing red. I had done my spring garden cleanup and filled six trash containers, about par but only one of them Waste Management’s. I lined them up in front of my fence to be picked up on my regular trash day. They weren’t. The extra cans of green waste had always been collected before, but I figured it wasn’t a policy just a good will gesture.

Loose layers of organic or inorganic materials that are placed on the soil surface are mulches. The cultural practice of mulching serves many purposes — a 2-inch-thick layer insulates the soil from rapid changes in temperature and conserves water for plantings in the process. It reduces competition from weeds, prevents unsightly mud from splashing onto foliage and flowers, protects falling fruit from injury and gives the garden a “finished” look. Almost anything that can be composted may be used for mulching.

Laguna's poetic history has another chapter to tell A little history needs to be added to that which was given in your article discussing poetry in Laguna ('Pale Ale and poetry,' Coastline Pilot, May 10). As far as I know, the first poetry meetings here evolved because Nan Wing was sharing her work with Sue Blevins in their Canyon home. These were expanded to include Long Beach State comparative literature professor Peter Carr, Marc Josyln, Marta Mitrovitch, Orange Coast College English professor Laurence Lieberman, Don Smith and Harry Harrison.

Laguna Beach residents can now place an unlimited amount of leaves next to their green waste cart on trash pick-up days, according to a city news release. The new leaf collection program is part of the city's contract with Waste Management that will run from Oct. 1 through Feb. 28 each year, the release said. Residents can place plastic green waste bags filled with leaves on top of or beside the cart. The bags must not exceed 5 feet in length or weigh more than 50 pounds. Waste management will also host a free composting class for Laguna residents later this month.

On Friday, November 13, the Laguna Beach Garden Club presents Horticulturist and Roger's Gardens nursery manager Ron Vanderhoff.  So what does "going green" really mean for gardeners here in Orange County? Gardening is changing...people want a fresh approach...a garden that is friendly to the environment, does not pollute and that conserves our natural resources.  Almost certainly this is a garden that reflects a sense of place, which "fits" its region - both in plants as well as in spirit.

Barbara Diamond Faced with the possibility of $10,000-a-day fines, the City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to take actions to meet the state mandate for diverting waste from landfills. The city has fallen behind on the state's 50% diversion requirement and has until the end of this year to catch up. Failure could lead to the hefty fines or forced implementation of state-dictated programs that have little consideration for local conditions.

Your eye-grabbing account of the battle royal at Main Beach between a tourist couple and Heermann?s gulls (?Police: Kansas man attacks bird on beach,? Jan. 9) raises an interesting question. What is there about people from Kansas that turns peaceful birds into violent marauders? Could it be the hayseed in their hair? The next time my farmer friends from the Sunflower State visit me they will have to shampoo for their own protection. DONN B. TRAGNITZ Laguna Beach ?
