Subject:
Discussion about future changes in services related to recycling, including "silver bullet" recycling containers and curb side recycling.

ACTION: Council action is possible in the form of guidance to staff.
Summary:
During the budgetary process and renegotiations with the Town's collection contractor, the Town has developed a plan to change the curbside recycling from bi-weekly collection to weekly collection.  As part of that change, the consolidation of the "silver bullets" recycling containers has been identified as a potential option. In February of 2011, Jay Reynolds, Parks and Public Works Director, provided a memo to the Town Manager which outlined this potential option. The memo was shared with the Town Council Finance Committee at their February 2011 meeting. Town staff is seeking input and guidance as to whether the full Council would support this operational change. The Parks and Public Works Director will present a brief slide presentation as part of this discussion. Attached are the following:  February 2011 memo, slide presentation and a letter from ecomaine (requesting the Council maintain the Silver Bullets without the changes requested by staff).
