Hillsboro, ND -- Hillsboro residents will now have the opportunity to recycle! At Monday night’s Hillsboro City Commission meeting, commissioners approved expanding their garbage services to include recycling. Hillsboro City Commission President Terry Sando says by offering recycling, it should greatly reduce the amount of garbage currently being hauled out, therefore reducing costs.

Residents will see a slight increase to their garbage rates, but Sando says that increase would have happened regardless of the recycling program.

Also at this week’s meeting, the commission discussed some ways to help streamline the process of getting important information out to the public quickly. Sando says they are looking at text alerts and call forwarding options.
