State recycling costs cold rise


The report states that a state house committee last week passed legislation by a 21-4 vote that would increase the fees charged for bringing recycling waste into the state. The current fee is $2/ton, and could increase to $5/ton. The report also says that many municipalities are having trouble keeping up with the rising cost of recycling programs, with inflation outpacing the cost of recycling. What does this mean for the consumer and their monthly trash hauling bills, well that was not mentioned in the story.
