Last week, the city began discussing the possibility of distributing 96-gallon recycling bins to residents, starting in 2013.
The nearly $1 million plan would be implemented in three phases.
Instead of loading recyclables into blue bags and placing them on the curb, residents could toss all recyclable materials into the new bins.
Lakewood City Council is slated to vote on that — and other 2013 budget issues — at its Dec. 17 meeting.
There’d be a large initial investment, but city officials believe that an automated system could save as much as $100,000 per year.
We thought we’d put it to a poll.
Do you support the city’s proposed new recycling initiative?
