During last Thursday's Town council meeting, the town council approved the implementation of a townwide, curbside recycling program.
More details will follow, but the program is slated to begin November 1, 2009 and initially will be ONLY for those residing in the incorporated town of Huntsville.
For several months we have been soliciting input from all residents and property owners and have heard from more than 50% of the users. Of the 50.4% who responded, 85.8% were in favor of the program and 90.3% were either in favor of or indifferent, but positive.
The price for each user will be $4 per month and the recycling materials will be picked up every other Monday beginning in November. New cans will be delivered to your curb during the month of October.
The October Gazette will have more information as well as lists of what can and cannot be recycled along with helpful hints for those new to recycling.
