Serving our customers and community
We would like to clear a few things up as there is a bit of confusion around our plans moving forward.
- We are still collecting recycling.
- We did not move forward with the county facility’s offer as there were unfortunately no cost savings and instead added expenses. It would have increased costs to take it to the landfill.
- We made the decision to stop taking municipalities as we have nowhere to process the material. The added tonnage would create more loads and as a result, we would have to haul it out of the area.
- We still have no choice but to haul all materials collected out of county as there is no local processing facility.
Our primary focus as of right now is to get the MRF rebuilt and eliminate the unfortunate cost increases we are incurring. We sincerely thank our customers and the community for your support during this time and apologize for any confusion.
