The City of Baltimore is rolling out a new program that, over the next several months, will provide lidded, wheeled, 65- or 35-gallon trash cans free to every household across the city.  The new cans, designed to reduce the problems of loose garbage and rodents, have been piloted successfully in a few sections of the city.  But some neighborhood groups say they believe the big new trash cans might be difficult to use.  
 

Jeffrey Raymond, Chief of Communications and Community Affairs at the city's Department of Public Works, joins Tom in the studio to describe how the new trash can program will work.
