CENTERVILLE, Utah (AP) -- Officials in Centerville are trying to make curbside recycling a reality after years of talking about it.

The City Council told staff members last week to begin negotiations to create a new recycling program with the city's current waste-disposal company.

It would be an "opt-out" system, meaning some residents would be allowed to forgo the $3 monthly fee if they have a financial hardship.

Mayor Ron Russell says most of the e-mail comments he receives are from people in favor of recycling. He says opponents aren't necessarily against recycling, but they don't want it to be mandated with another fee from the city.

The city is still accepting public comments.
