LAWTON, OK (KSWO)-More people are needed to implement a city wide recycling program.

So far, just over 500 Lawton residents have signed up for the recycle program, but in order for it to take off, a minimum of 5,000 residents must sign up. Citizens who participate will have to pay an extra $7 each month on their utility bill.

Residents can sign up for the new recycling program on the City of Lawton web page.
