Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) The city of Twin Falls won a national award for improving its recycling program.
The International City-County Management Association gave Twin Falls the "Voice of the People Award for Transformation." In 2009, just over half of the citizens who answered a survey gave the city a "good" or "excellent" rating for recycling. Last year, that same rating went up just over 30 percent.
Assistant City Director Mike Williams says, "We're going to do our best to maintain our service level that the citizens of Twin Falls have come to expect. Roughly 83 percent of our citizens rate recycling excellent or good. We want to keep it that way, and we hope to improve, as well."
Communities receiving this award showed the biggest increase in service ratings from their own residents. Twin Falls will be sending out another survey early next year.
