Report on the status and performance of the recycling program and discussion of a potential new commercial recycling program.
ACTION: No action is anticipated.
Staff will present an update on the performance of the curb side recycling program from July 2011 through February 2012. In July 2011, the Town eliminated the drop-off containers, aka "Silver Bullets", and moved to weekly curb-side residential service. Staff will present a report that will demonstrate the performance of the program during this time period. REAC members have reviewed the recycling report and issued a recommendation.
Staff will also update the Town Council on new efforts to increase commercial recycling. REAC members have reviewed the potential new program and are enthusiastic about its implementation.
A Powerpoint presentation regarding recent updates to the current recycling program and the Committee's recommendations on operations moving forward is attached. A staff memo detailing the proposed new commercial recycling program is also attached.
