Knox Council Ponders Recycling Pickup Change


Knox residents may soon have larger recycling containers and less frequent pickup. The city council is considering a change from the open containers currently used for weekly curbside pickup to larger, wheeled containers with flappable lids. If they choose that option, pickup will take place every other week.

The open recycling totes are problematic on windy days, as items blow out and create a litter problem. Before making the change, the Knox City Council wants to know what residents think. An insert will be included with water bills to gauge personal preference.
