To bring more recycling to Indianapolis, we want to create a program modeled off cities like Seattle, San Diego, and others. This program would make curbside recycling not only free, but required. The trash service would pick up the recyclables (glass, #1-7 plastics, aluminum, tin, and steel beverage and food cans, newspapers and magazines ) biweekly, on the same day as trash collection. Households that don’t recycle will be fined. The goal is to not raise taxes at all. Though we don’t have access to information like city budget and estimated costs, which are important factors in this proposal, we still want to pitch that Indianapolis try this program in a 4-5 week trial. At the end of the trial period, a public meeting would be held to receive input from the community and also figure out if the program is economically reasonable. Hopefully, Indy will find that they can make this program work so the city can become a leader in environmental actions.


*Correction! Plastics 1-7 are now also accepted. Sorry for the misinformation.
