Graham to Get Curbside Recycling

The Graham City Council met today. One issue on the agenda was the city's recycling program.  Graham officials have negotiated curbside pickup of recycling at no cost to the residents. The condition is that residents must move from dumpsters to roll-out carts within the next six to eight months.

The city started recycling two years ago. At first, it was just a trailer that filled up every two weeks. Then, it expanded when one resident took over the refuse convenience station for the city.  The city council was briefed on the status of the program in October.

This prompted them to negotiate with their existing waste collector to move to curbside recycling. As a stand-alone initiative, curbside recycling would cost the residents five to six dollars per month. With the negotiated approach, there is no cost to residents.
