(AP)-Sheridan will begin a pilot program for curbside recycling this spring. Solid Waste Manager Charles Martineau says the program will serve about 125 residences in two neighborhoods. City officials say the program is intended to boost recycling and extend the life of the city landfill. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is making a $31,300 grant to the program and the city is chipping in $16,300. Officials say the recycling will be single-stream, meaning all tin, steel, aluminum, plastic, office paper and newspapers will be accepted in the containers. Glass and cardboard will not be collected.
