Wisconsin city expands curbside program.

Madison, Wisc., has announced plans to expand its curbside recycling program by adding milk and juice cartons, aseptic packaging and aluminum foil pans and trays.

Waste Management Recycle America's efforts to find markets for these materials have helped to make the expansion possible, Madison Mayor Dave Cieslewicz says. The company processes the material collected through Madison's recycling program.

Cieslewicz says he believes the city will be able to recycle about 300 additional tons of material annually by expanding the curbside program to include these materials, resulting in more than $8,000 in landfill fee savings and generating $3,000 in new revenue.
