The Hubbard County Board approved a six-month contract extension with the Hubbard County Developmental Achievement Center (DAC) for recycling services at their Dec. 19 meeting while other options are vetted.

Solid Waste Administrator Jed Nordin reminded the board that they had discussed a two-year contract with the DAC at a work session and "to see what compensation was required from the DAC for that."

We're fearful we'll run into a situation where there's not enough clients to continue operating as we have."
