Fort Collins, Colo., Recycling Upgrade Put On HoldFort Collins, Colo., Recycling Upgrade Put On Hold
February 16, 2016
Plans to increase recycling in Fort Collins by upping requirements on trash-hauling companies are not yet ready to roll.
City officials had expected to bring a variety of regulatory changes to City Council for formal consideration in February after months of research, public outreach and discussions with trash-haulers about recycling.
But an unenthusiastic reception from some council members to elements of the proposed changes — such as requiring haulers to pick up food scraps from residential customers for composting — left city staff with more work to do.
