Author:Suny Group

Boise, Idaho, officials recently created a survey to gather input about potential procedures to waste reduction, recycling, compost and trash collection. The survey aims to examine how city residents can do more to reduce, reuse and recycle, as well as gauge community opinions on trash collection frequency.

Right now, trash collection occurs every week in the city, with recycling collected every two weeks. The option outlined in the survey switches that, with trash collection every two weeks and weekly recycling pickup.

According to a 7 KTVB report, a city spokesman said the city has long had a focus on recycling, but more attention needs to be put on reducing and reusing waste.
