Why don't we have weekly recycling pickup?

Weekly recycling was considered by the City Council in the City’s last Request for Proposals for Residential Recycling. 

The rates for weekly collection and every other week collection were presented to Council. The cost for weekly collection was nearly double what is currently paid. At the time, when an organics recycling program was also being explored, the City Council chose to keep recycling costs down and stay with the current schedule.
