Recycling program discussed at Doniphan Co meeting

Doniphan Co Courthouse

(KNZA)--The implementation of a recycling program throughout northeast Kansas and southeast Nebraska was discussed at this week's Doniphan County Commission meeting.

According to the unofficial meeting minutes, RJ Hamilton with Superior Recycling Services, Inc. meet with the commission Monday to discussed the matter.

Hamilton told commissioners the idea is to place recycling bins in populous areas of the county to collect cardboard, paper and plastics.

Superior Recycling Services would pick up the bins, and haul them to Falls City where the materials would be sorted and taken to recycling facilities.

Hamilton said a recycling grant is available through the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, and if the Commission is interested, he would applied for the grant before the May 15th deadline to purchase recycling bins for the program.

Commissioners expressed an interest in the recycling program. However, no action was taken pending the outcome of transferring operations of the Doniphan County Transfer Station over from Waste Management to another company and determining what services will be provided.
