    Dolores Park will be a little bit greener from now on for the hoards of people who like to descend upon the popular San Francisco park.

    San Francisco's Dolores Park kicked off an improved waste and  recycling program this past weekend.

    San Francisco Supervisor Scott Weiner and San Francisco Recreation  and Park, with a grant through Recology, started an increased waste and  recycling service for the popular Dolores at 18th Streets park, which sees  many visitors -- especially on weekends and holidays.

    An extra park attendant will be hired through the grant and  Mission Neighborhood Centers, Inc. to monitor, empty, and sort trash and  recycling bins during peak visiting hours, said program officials. The  attendant will also be on hand to answer any questions about waste disposal.

    The program will add 386 clean up hours on weekends and holidays  through September, Dolores Park program officials said.
