Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner rejected a new contract on Wednesday, March 9th, with Waste Management, putting the city’s curbside recycling in limbo. [UPDATE: An agreement has been reached between the two parties.]
"We will continue with recycling. We just have to put forth a strategic plan where it can continue, where it's cost-efficient, and we'll try to do it in such a way that's the least disruptive," Turner said, according to the Houston Chronicle. "Instead of it being like twice a month, it may have to be once a month for right now, but we are certainly talking to a number of other players out here in the marketplace."
