Fines can be waived if a household appeals and begins recycling within 21 days after the fine is issued.
Several drafts of the policy were discussed and revised by councilors through March and April.
Councilors removed language that would have asked the city’s trash hauler not to collect trash from addresses that didn’t put out a recycling bin with their trash barrels.
As adopted, all residents’ trash will be collected regardless of whether they recycle.
