The city of Kingston, New York, plans to transition from a single-stream recycling system to a dual-stream recycling system, according to the Daily Freeman newspaper. 

The Daily Freeman reports that the transition back to dual-stream recycling came in response to a decision by the Ulster County Resource Recovery Agency (UCRRA) to raise its fee for accepting single-stream recycling and to stop accepting mixed or commingled recyclables at the end of this year.
