LAREDO, TEXAS (KGNS) -- Ever since the City of Laredo implemented it's recycling program, back in September, trash pick has been cut to once a week.
The weekly garbage pick up has drawn a lot of complaints from people who say they don't have enough room for all their trash in one bin.
Liquid laundry detergent bottles, paper and cardboard.
Terry Santos has been recycling since the city started the program.
Laredo city councilman, Roque Vela, and volunteers went door to door in Alexander Estates on Monday morning.
Their hope to encourage people to recycle more.
Sandra Molina is one of the volunteers that went door to door.
The city estimates nearly six percent of people's trash can be recycled.
That means the more that's recycled, the more space in your trash can, and more space available in the landfill.
The recycling program has been in effect since late September.
