Vote on Mobile, Ala.’s Recycling Plan Postponed Until June

The vote on Mayor Sandy Stimpson's single stream recycling plan has been postponed until June 20, allowing more time for the raised concerns to be clarified.

In April, the Mobile, Ala., City Council reviewed Mayor Sandy Stimpson’s proposed single stream recycling plan and two recycling contracts, which raised concerns that the proposed plan could lead to legal difficulty between Mobile’s Solid Waste Authority and the city’s hauler Waste Management.

Now, the vote on Stimpson’s proposed recycling plan has been postponed until June 20, allowing more time for the raised concerns to be clarified.

City officials also have said they want to establish collection sites throughout the city.
