New Recycling Program on Hold in Arlington



    The Arlington City Council postponed a vote on the proposed changes to their recycling program.

    Republic Waste Services, which collects the city's trash and recyclables, requested the delay so that they would have more time to refine their automated collection program.

    The company wants to switch Arlington residents from recycle bins to 95-gallon carts that can be collected by a lift on CNG-powered trucks and not people.

    The change is expected to cost Arlington residents and additional $1.09 per month.

    There is no word on when the new plan may go in place.
