BROKEN ARROW, Okla. - The Broken Arrow City Council voted Tuesday to start a recycling pilot program.
The vote followed months of research by the citizens recycling committee.
They recommended running two concurrent pilot programs to 500 customers each.
The first will continue collection of garbage in trash bags and use a cart for recyclables, while the second will use carts for both.
Both programs will reduce trash pick-up to once a week.
Some at the meeting spoke against it, voicing concerns about the cost and the reduction from twice-a-week pick-ups to once a week.
Some said they are concerned the city will make recycling mandatory, which officials say is not the case.
