The Abilities Unlimited recycling program in Jonesboro will soon be getting some new funds.

Beginning May 1, the tipping fees at the Legacy Landfill will go up 50 cents per ton.

According to Brett Provost with the Craighead County Regional Solid Waste Management District, Abilities will eventually get 31 cents of every 50 cents.

Jonesboro Mayor Harold Perrin said the city will receive those funds and then pay Abilities Unlimited.   

There was a presentation on this plan at the City Council Finance Committee meeting Tuesday, March 29. 

The committee forwarded the proposal to the full city council.
