After months without any way to recycle plastic bottles, the Jerusalem Municipality is agreeing to return recycling containers to the streets.

Under the new deal, around 2,000 orange bottle-recycling containers will be stationed across the capital.

The municipality began removing the old recycling cages in October, and pulled them all by December ahead of a new bottle deposit law.

But a dispute between the municipality and the Tamir recycling authority meant residents went months without the ability to recycle bottles unless they brought them to a local supermarket.
