Lawrence city commissioners kept the process moving to start a citywide curbside recycling program but took no final action on the idea Tuesday.
Commissioners opened a public hearing on a general plan to create a curbside recycling program. But commissioners did not approve the plan, which largely is a procedural step required by state law. Instead, commissioners said they wanted to wait to have a discussion on the topic in January, when the city can review formal proposals from entities interested in providing the service.
The city opened the proposed recycling plan up for public comment, but no one spoke.
