    The city of St. James will halt collection of yard waste in August as it reassesses the cost effectiveness of the process. Currently, the city is down two workers and spending hundreds of man hours the first week of every month in collecting and disposing of residential yard waste, and the council agreed to stop collection for at least the next month to get caught up on other city projects ongoing this summer.
