Curbside recycling tabled indefinitely

July 4, 2013

A proposed mandatory curbside recycling and one-hauler trash pickup plan that would affect residents of five Saline County cities has been dropped for now, in light of strong resistance from members of the public and several city officials.
Saline County Regional Solid Waste Management District board member and Haskell Mayor Jeff Arey, in a special meeting of the district board Wednesday, read a statement expressing a divide between the intentions of the program and the current plan.
After Arey's speech, the board unanimously voted to drop the curbside recycling project, which was set to go to bid later this summer.
As a result, the two public meetings scheduled to discuss the issue have been canceled.
More details are found in Friday's issue.
