City Discusses Curbside Recycling Option | VideoJoel Porter | 11/14/2012
Public works director Jeff Heintz says recycling is an option. However, residents would have to pay an additional fee.
"We`ve obviously been keeping our costs down, but it`s time to catch up to our existing operating costs and then start to look at what other programs we want to offer," he said.
"Some people who didn`t know what curbside recycling is, we less enthusiastic simply because they didn`t know and when we explained it, they were very open to the idea," said Karen Erickstad with the Missouri Valley Resources Council.
It`s still not known how much curbside recycling would cost. Commissioners plan to hear public input on the issue later this month.
