CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A plan is in the works to make "going green" a little easier for city of Charleston residents.
Plans for a new draft of Charleston's Recycling Bill were discussed Thursday night at the Enviornment and Recycling Committee's Meeting.
The changes to the bill would allow residents to put all recycling into one bag for curbside pick-up.
City leaders say it would simplify things.
"It's simpler for the people doing the recycling, its simpler for those who have to pick it up, and its simpler for the people who operate the facility, explained committee member and Charleston City Council Member Edward Talkington.

The draft will be complete by February 1st.
