PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WVEC) -- Are Portsmouth city leaders burning your tax dollars?

The city charges $30 a month for waste collection, which includes curbside recycling. But those recyclables apparently being recycled at all!

The Virginian-Pilot uncovered the city's recycling contract ran out, and there is no replacement in line.

Now those big green trucks are hauling recyclables to an incinerator near the Jordan Bridge.

City leaders say they're searching for a solution.
