It's possible a curbside recycling program could be in place for Tiffin before the end of this year, said Vicki Turco of Karl's Hauling, the company contracted with the city to provide recycling services.
"We're still looking into it," she said. "We have to finish a couple details."
She said the drop-off program has changed little since it started last summer at 72 Adams St.

Jeff Turco tosses a couple of plastic bottles into the No. 2 plastics bin at his business Sept. 28, 2012.
Although Karl's allowed recyclables to be co-mingled during a phase-in, she said items must be separated now.
"Everything has to be sorted before it arrives at the center," she said.
Depending on the day, Turco said, 50-100 people drop off items at the center at Adams Street.
