Appleton Proposing Public Recycling Bins

Appleton Proposing Public Recycling Bins

By Katie Kozak. CREATED Jul 12, 2013

 APPLETON -- Appleton is going green.

Two city council members are proposing new recycling bins for around the city. They would go next to garbage cans already in public areas like parks and along College Avenue. The people who frequent these areas think the bins are a pretty good idea.

"I think people just need the opportunity to see it and have it there in order to throw and recycle versus just throw it away as garbage," Lisa Preissner, an avid Appleton Park user.

Organizers say this plan is part of a bigger effort by the city to increase in-home recycling.
