Curbside recycling fees suspended in New Orleans

In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the New Orleans City Council has decided to suspend curbside recycling fees for residents and businesses. In November, the council voted to suspend sanitation fees for unoccupied areas damaged by the hurricane; however, the recycling fees were not addressed during this time, according to an article in The Times-Picayune. The monthly $1 to $2 fee was suspended last week and will be reinstated once recycling collection resumes, the paper says.
