Currently, the city owns and operates a drive-up recycling center that has not adequately met the needs of citizens and is often filled to capacity, making it difficult for citizens to drop off their recyclable material.
“With curbside recycling services now being offered to all our citizens, they won’t experience the inconvenience of long lines and overflowing bins,” Janacek said.
With the non-segregated, single stream approach to the recycling process, residents will be able to discard their plastics, paper, glass, cardboard, aluminum, steel or tin cans into the one cart. “This method provides a simple process for our residents,” Janacek added.
The Municipal Authority will be considering changes to the city ordinance in March that will affect the monthly sanitation rates and possible options being offered to residents.
