Recycling pact: More material, more revenue

May 29, 2012 6:25 am
Nathan Mayberg writes in the Register Star the Columbia County Board of Supervisors is expected to ink a five-year contract with the Vermont contractor, Casella Recycling LLC next month. Casella will collect a broader range of recyclable materials and provide the county with a greater revenue sharing percentage on the sale of the waste. The company will also lower the county's per tonnage cost from $30 per ton to $22 per ton. County recycling policy can now include most plastics, as well as grocery bags, straws, shrink wrap, yogurt containers, cups, and ketchup bottles. In a separate decision, the county will now levy a charge of $25 per ton for all yard waste brought to the Greenport transfer station, and a minimum charge of $2 for non-weighable yard waste. The disposal of yard waste was previously free. Read the full story in the Register Star.
