When the town of Normal begins curbside recycling this summer, trucks will be coming on a weekly basis, but it'll cost more. The town council approved the weekly schedule along with a $2.00 a month increase in garbage fees. The city of Bloomington also approved a $2.00 monthly hike in garbage fees last night to pay for new automated trucks. It'll also cost about 30% more to park in city parking ramps. Hourly fees are going from 65 cents to a dollar an hour, and daily fees will go up to $7.00 a day from the current $4.55.
