The City of Mobile is pumped and ready to explore curbside recycling. And guess what?
They want to know your thoughts and preferences on this exciting initiative.
Here’s the deal: Mobile recently scored a major grant to explore recycling options across the entire county.
The brains behind this operation is Casi Callaway, Mobile’s Chief Resilience Officer.
With the grant from the Alabama Department of Environment Management (ADEM), they’re embarking on a comprehensive feasibility study to determine our best options and associated costs.
Now, the cool part is that the city wants to keep curbside recycling affordable for all.
They’re considering a sliding scale pricing system to accommodate as many households as possible.
Whether you can spare $10 or $12, or maybe as low as $5 for those facing financial constraints, they want to make sure that everyone’s included.
Let’s talk about the bigger picture.
Mobile is already offering free trash services within city limits, which is pretty awesome.
But they want to move a couple of steps forward and bring sustainable practices to the forefront.
By embracing curbside recycling, Mobile can create a more eco-friendly environment and stand out among other cities vying for young people and a forward-focused community.
That’s where YOU come in.
The city has released a survey and wants your opinions on the matter.
And if you’re up for it, mark your calendars for the upcoming community meetings.
How about it?
Let’s show the world that our city is not only beautiful but also dedicated to preserving the environment for generations to come.
The countdown to curbside recycling starts now!
