Iowa City receives funds for recycling improvements

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

The Iowa DNR's Solid Waste Alternative Program has given money to Iowa City to buy 4 solar-powered trash and recycling compactors.

They will be installed in downtown Iowa City this Spring.

If successful, the city is considering expanding the program.

Using solar power, items are compacted, reducing the need for daily garbage pick-up.

The system sends an alert when it's time to empty the containers.
