Today in Sacramento: Here’s what you need to know for Tuesday

Recycler restrictions talk

The Sacramento County Board of Supervisors will consider tougher restrictions on recycling facilities. Neighbors have complained about noise, odor, aesthetics, loitering, illegal dumping and unkempt premises, according to a county staff report. Besides recommending new requirements for recyclers, the Planning Commission suggested that supervisors find new ways for homeless people to access recycling facilities. The issue is slated for discussion at 2 p.m. in the Board of Supervisors chambers, 700 H St., Sacramento.
