Grant To Fund Recycling Carts

Here is the article from the Webster-Kirkwood Times from today, written by Megan Murphy:

"Residents of Warson Woods may soon be getting wheeled carts for their recyclables.

The city has received a grant that will cover 90 percent of the $36,000 cost to purchase a container for every household. Solid waste contractor Veolia has also agreed to chip in to help cover the remaining amount.

Warson Woods aldermen hope this measure will encourage residents to recycle, noting that up to 80 percent of household waste can be reused.

In the meantime, the board will extend its contract for Veolia's environmental services, while researching future waste removal needs through resident surveys and town hall meetings.

Pending community approval, residents could receive their new recycling carts as early as mid-summer."
