The New Prague City Council has unanimously approved a request to locate an aluminum can reverse vending machine in the Econofoods parking lot.

Mike McLoone of New Prague proposed the machine, which will allow residents to recycle their aluminum cans. A person can place the cans in a hopper and the machine will sort the cans, crush them and then pay the person.

The New Prague Planning and Zoning Commission unanimously recommended approving the device.
