ASHLAND, Ore — Ashland residents will have to pay a little extra for their recycling, after city council voted for a recycling surcharge.
The charge will help continue recycling for paper and most plastics.
Council voted for the surcharge because China, which is the worlds largest importer of recycling materials, is cracking down on importing recyclables.
Residents could pay anything between $2.50 to $3 a month.
The surcharge is temporary, until the city can come up with a new permanent plan.
