TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Two measures passed by the Shawnee County Commission Monday morning clear the way for possible curbside recycling service.

One measure approved implements a four-dollar fee on each bill, but gives a four-dollar discount if the customer decides to recycle, essentially encouraging recycling.

The second measure requests proposals from companies that would sort the recyclebles.

Commissioners say there are still more decisions to be made before the program could be implemented, including what might happen to the current drop off locations. Commissioner Vic Miller says he believes they might be done away with in favor of the curbside pickup.

The measures were passed two to one, with Commissioner Shelly Buhler dissenting.
