SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — Sioux City officials are expressing concern over the low number of households taking advantage of a free recycling program.
The Sioux City Journal (http://bit.ly/1unzIGk ) the city's waste collection service released data Wednesday showing only 18 percent of local homeowners have requested a recycling bin for curbside pickup. City Councilman Dan Moore says too many people are still unaware of the service, nearly four years after its creation.
Sioux City has offered free 65-gallon recycling bins to promote recycling since 2010. The service also aims to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills.
Moore says the city needs to step up its marketing efforts to raise public awareness.
