FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Fort Wayne officials are praising more success with the city's One-Cart Recycling Program.

They say to date: 70-percent of local homes are using the large bins to recycle.

That has kept landfill fees down while raising revenues for recyclables, which in turn helps keep your garbage bill down.

Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry says, “The monthly fee for single-family homes has now dropped from $11.24 a month to $9.95.”

The city generated more than $426,000 in revenue from recyclables last year.
