Next month the city is holding a series of public meetings to discuss recycling going form every week to every other week.

According to the city the curbside changes begin September 30.

The reduction is due to decreased need for recycled materials.

Last year China stopped buying paper and most plastics from the U.S.

The city plans to save more than a million dollars a year by cutting back.

Here is a list of meetings:

  • Wednesday, September 11 starting at 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Morris K Udall Center (7200 E. Tanque Verde Road)

  • Wednesday, September 18 starting at 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at El Pueblo Regional Center (101 W. Irvington Road)
  • Thursday, September 19 starting at 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at William M. Clements Center (8155 E. Poinciana Drive / MPR & basketball court area)
