Decatur – The recycling program in Decatur is losing money, and the city says it's a victim of its own success.
Nearly 60 percent of Decatur recycles, but the city says they didn't plan for so many people signing up. The recycling program is now 500 thousand dollars in the red.
The program's currently running on a loan from the General Operating Fund. The city says its original plan was not enough to cover the costs.
One of the greenest neighborhoods in the city is in the west end. Over 12 hundred households recycle in that neighborhood. Ravina Park is about halfway down the list, and Wabash Crossing recycles the least.
