FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Officials’ consideration of single-stream recycling means Fargo residents soon may not have to sort through their cans and bottles.

KVRR-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1lozLm2 ) that the Solid Waste Department is studying whether single-stream recycling would be a fit for the city.

The city now has a curbside recycling program that’s free. Single-stream recycling allows residents to combine recyclables in one bin without having to sort them.

West Fargo initiated such a program earlier this year, and participation increased dramatically.

West Fargo Sanitation Manager Thomas Clark says it’s been welcomed throughout the community. The success prompted consideration of implementing the scheme in Fargo.

If a similar program takes off in Fargo, residents would be charged a monthly fee of under $6.
