City Sanitation Superintendent Robert Janes says when more people recycle the city makes more money from material sales, and spends less money on dumping fees. Janes says about 25 percent of city residents are using the free program, which started October first. He says they’re now trying to expand it. He says,</p><p><em>“The ultimate goal for us is to do curbside recycling every week instead of every other week, and then doing our trash pickup every other week. That’s our ultimate goal.”</em></p> Fri, 12 Oct 2012 19:26:04 +0000 Shelly Baskin 23178 at http://wkms.org Curbside Recycling Program Saving Madisonville Money
