And so far, it seems to be working out nicely.
Now the City wants to take that success and add to it and complicate it until it turns into a freakin' mess. Get ready for food bins!
SAN ANTONIO -- Officials with the city's Solid Waste Management Department said the department plans on adding a third collection bin for organic waste.(from KSAT-12)
In addition to brown trash bins and blue recycling bins, residents would have a green bin, specifically for green waste.
"On your collection day for your blue recycle day, you'll have your green cart, as well as an option for your yard waste program," said David McCary, director of Solid Waste Management.
McCary said the green bins would be for green waste, such as leaves, grass, fruits and vegetable, but the exact rules may take some getting used to.
"I think there's a ... learning curve to this and I think that as that curve moves forward, it's gong to be impressive for people to know, 'Yes, I can put shredded paper in the bin,'" said McCary.
I wonder how all these extra bins will look when people start storing them on the sides of the houses because there ain't no more room in the garages. Homeowner associations are going to love this one.
But wait, there's an out!
Residents that don't want an organics bin won't need one, if they are already composting at home. In those cases, the bin  would be optional.No problem then, because I certainly compost at home. Don't you?
Oh, wait. Is composting allowed in the deeds and restrictions?
