The city of Iowa City will implement a new “dual stream” recycling system on April 4, according to a press release.

The new system will require residents to sort their recycling into two parts: fiber and paper and plastics and cans.

Residents will also be allowed to place the recycled materials directly into recycling bins.

The new initiative will help increase the number of recycled items each year, said Jennifer Jordan, the city’s recycling coordinator, in the press release.

Jordan said the time needed for bagging recycling will be reduced because of the new system.
