Annual K-9 Trials competition helps raise money for police dogs’ retirements

We all know the saying “dogs are a man’s best friend,” but in the case of K-9 officers they’re more than that. They’re partners, and officers’ lives often depend on them.

City, apartments complexes team up to host recycling competition

In an effort to curb excess waste as San Marcos’ population grows, apartment complexes have teamed up with the city for Bin It to Win It, a recycling competition that results in prizes for the top contender

Amy Kirwin, Community Enhancement Initiatives manager, said this is the third annual competition, which has received positive feedback from residents and the city in the past.’

‘At apartment complexes, recycling is serviced weekly, so the day of the recycling service, we’ll go in that morning and pull out contamination, if there is any. We’ll get an estimated volume and compare that to the number of units,’ said Kirwin. ‘The apartment complexes will get points on how much they’re recycling and how much they’re not contaminating the recycling containers.’
