FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Fort Wayne City Council may approve a new recycling contract that could bring the city more money while making recycling easier.

If passed residents could combine all recycling objects into one new container.

The measure could save the city more than $100,000.

City leaders say the goal is to get more people to recycle.

Frank Suarez with the city of Fort Wayne says, “The community at this point isn't recycling at the rate that we would like to see them doing. We're just over 30 percent and we like that is just not acceptable for the community so we're hoping that it will get stronger.”

Suarez says the new program would add no additional costs to tax payers.
