RENO, Nev. (KRNV & -- Today, Waste Management officials are expected to present proposed changes to its Waste Disposal and Recycling program to the Reno City Council.

The "single-stream" recycling program would allow residents to put recyclables into a single container, instead of having to separate them.

According to Justin Caporusso with Waste Management, pilot studies have shown the single bins increase the number of recyclables by 85 percent and double participation. Waste Management would offer five service options to residents and prices could go up 61 cents a month depending on the amount of recycling you plan to do.

The City Council will make a final decision on whether or not to approve the contract for single-stream recycling on Oct. 24.
