 The City of Jacksonville is automating it’s curbside recycling program. That means new recycling bins for residents. 

"Soon, three-fourths of the city will have the new carts," said Jeff Foster, director of Solid Waste for the City of Jacksonville.

The new recycling bins have bright yellow lids and they will be picked up every-other week by a truck with a big mechanical arm. And they can hold much more than the old blue bins.

"All the plastics 1-7, metals, glass, paper, cardboard, styrofoam...even cellophane wrapping from packaging," said Foster.

Businesses were concerned that shutting the lights off created a hazard for their employees. The city had also heard many complaints from residents about the condition of the right of ways.

Mayor Brown said "The legislation will have an immediate impact on the community"
