Killeen’s City Council is planning to review the city’s curbside recycling program, and may eliminate the charges currently associated with the program.
Currently, residents pay $2.48 per month for the program, but Mayor Dan Corbin said the incentives may not be in the right place in the program, where those who do not recycle pay nothing.
Corbin has expressed interest in a mandatory recycling program for the city, as well as a potential regional partnership to offset costs of the program.
Free recycling could potentially save Killeen residents money, as waste collection fees are based on the size of the trash can used.
