Sioux City moves to cut curbside glass recycling

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — The City Council has taken its first official step toward eliminating curbside glass recycling in Sioux City.

The council gave its first-round approval to a measure that would end the current practice. Two more council approvals are needed for the measure to take effect.

Plastic, aluminum cans and paper still will be accepted.

The city’s Environment Advisory Board made the recommendation in May. The board said glass had declined in value, making its processing impractical without passing higher costs to residents.

Residents will be encouraged to cash in bottles for refunds.
