Sioux City defers vote on curbside glass recycling

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — Sioux City leaders have deferred a final vote on eliminating curbside glass recycling.

The Sioux City Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1ffa256 ) the City Council met Monday and deferred the decision for two weeks.

The proposal would end the glass recycling part of the city’s solid waste contract with Gill Hauling. Plastic, aluminum cans and paper still would be accepted.

Mayor Bob Scott says he wants more information about whether the city’s contract will be changed to reflect a savings to Sioux City if a Kansas City, Mo-based company takes over glass recycling. Ripple Glass Co. has offered to take the city’s glass at no charge.
