Sturgeon Bay Moves Closer to Every Other Week Recycling

The City of Sturgeon Bay continues to move in the direction of collecting recyclables on an every other week basis, beginning in September. The city council Tuesday evening is expected to act on changes to the city ordinance having to do with recycling. According to a recycling survey compiled in February & March, the new collection schedule could save the city about $13,000 in fuel & maintenance costs, would provide more flexibility in the use of personnel & would be good for the environment due to fewer emissions, less use of fossil fuels, & less pollutants coming from the vehicles. The survey also noted that out of 920 residents putting out recycling during a recent four week period, only 19 had cans filled greater than 50% and 13 of them were businesses. As part of the change to the recycling program, a followup report is required in a year.
