QUINCY, IL — Quincy aldermen agreed to table the purchase of new recycling bins for the city's week-old opt-in recycle program at Monday night's council meeting.
Ward 4 Alderman Tony Sassen said he tabled the measure due to a lack of quorum at a prior committee meeting before the council.
Sassen says with Quincy Recycle closing to the public, he believes the council would have voted differently on the newly adopted opt-in recycle program.
"I encourage the alderman here to reach out to the mayor or myself to come up with a new plan if need be,” Sassen said. “Because I know it wasn't a unanimous vote last time."
Right now, 86 people have signed up to use the city service.
The service now costs residents $5 per month.
The deadline to sign up is May 1.
