SOUTHPORT, NC (WECT) - Southport is considering changing its recycling plans.
The Board of Alderman will hold a public hearing Thursday, September 13th, to gather comments on moving to a 96-gallon roll-out cart and away from the 18-gallon plastic bins.
The change would add $1.45 to the monthy bills, but alderman say it would give homeowners more space to recycle. It's also easier to roll the bigger carts to the curb.
Research from town leaders indicates Oak Island and Shallotte made this move about a year and a half ago, Caswell Beach switched in July and Leland will move to the bigger cart in September.
The meeting starts at 6 p.m. in City Hall.
