CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - After criticism from residents, the Casper City Council has voted to restore the city’s electronic waste recycling program.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/2mSI396 ) that the council voted Tuesday to contract to recycle electronic waste rather than start dumping it in a landfill. City staff will prepare a new contract for future approval.

Last month, the council rejected a contract to renew the recycling program, which is mandated by city law. The council initially declined the revisit the issue, but Mayor Kenyne Humphrey decided to bring the program back up for discussion.

The contract was rejected as a cost-saving measure. It called for the city to spend as much as %57,000 annually to have electronic waste shipped to Denver to be recycled.
