The city has begun looking into the possibility of adding a recycling option for its residents.
Several requests from interested residents have been received, so the city has started the initial process of looking into the costs.
Residents are currently paying $14.55 for their first garbage can, $8.30 for a second can if desired, and $6 for a green waste recycling can.
The city is considering the addition of a plastics and paper recycling can, which could ultimately reduce the amount of garbage put into the resident’s garbage cans. The city plans to research several options and hear professional opinions at upcoming council meetings before scheduling a public hearing.
