Reading recycling fee suspended

Reading recycling fee suspended

READING, Pa. - The Reading Area Water Authority will stop collecting a recycling fee from people who live in the city.

The move comes nearly a week after the Commonwealth Court ruled officials in Reading didn't have the right to charge the fee.

The city is appealing the decision. The fee is $6.86 a month.

Officials with the city said the recycling program is not sustainable without the fee.
