It's not the final vote tonight. But the whole La Crosse city council will weigh in on whether to approve a plastics recycling contract with the city's garbage contractor. Council member Jai Johnson has been the chief advocate for the recycling ordinance. She says cost was the biggest hurdle. But that's been trimmed back from over fifty thousand a year to about 28 thousand. Further offset by how much plastics get recycled. Johnson says the city saves sixty dollars tipping fee per ton of plastics that get recycled. She estimates that at about 12 thousand dollars per year.The plastics recycling program would begin June first.
