The monthly fee to fund a mandatory curb-side recycling program has been raised by 20 cents.

In action taken Jan. 24, the city council voted unanimously to bump up the fee of the service from $3.05 per household each month to $3.25. The added revenue is expected to help the city cover the actual costs of the program.

Bountiful implemented its recycling program in August of 2008. The program is expected to extend the life of the city’s landfill.
