Palmyra City Council will vote to change how city recycles


The Palmyra City Council could change the way people have recycled for the last twenty years. 

The council is debating whether or not to allow curb side recycling for residents within city limits. Allied Waste Systems, who picks up the trash for city residents, even offered to pick up the recycling for free for close to a year, but Palmyra Mayor Loren Graham says it isn't a clear yes vote for the alderman. 

"I'm concerned about a little bit is when we went to our trash pickup, they provided us with the bins that we use for our trash and we had some complaints from our citizens that it was too big and that kind of a thing and now if we have two of them that's another hurdle we'll have to overcome," said Graham. 

The city council will vote on the issue Thursday night.  If it passes, this will only be allowed for city residents.  Mayor Graham said the volunteer recycle program will still be open for people outside city limits.
