Not Baaaaaaaaaad. Council Saves Green, Going Green; Lakewood, Ohio's New Trash Pick Up Plan Announced

Starting on the first of April, residents will no longer be required to put their trash in garbage cans. They only need to place their unbagged trash on the tree lawn for animals to eat. That’s right, animals.

After a quick study, it was found that goats and pigs are voracious eaters of solid waste. One city official remembered cartoons from his youth in which goats would eat anything, including clothes drying on a line, tin cans, and even dynamite. “Only a fool would not consider this as the perfect solution. Why pay city workers to do what animals will do for free?” The city has issued RFP’s for a variety of animals to help with trash removal. If all goes well, there should be about 250 piglets and 47 goats on the streets of Lakewood by the end of the week.

    Hmm. Sounds like an April fools joke.
