The Board of Summit County, Colo., Commissioners has passed a proposed flow-control ordinance in an effort to help maintain free public recycling. And over the next two weeks, the towns within the county will vote on the ordinance, ultimately determining its fate.
Summit Daily News has more details:
The proposed county flow-control ordinance to help maintain free public recycling has now been passed by the Board of County Commissioners and appears set for final approvals from three of the four towns in the next two weeks.
The three-member county board gave final approval of Ordinance No. 2A, a 17-page directive to area trash haulers regarding the collection, transportation and disposal of sold waste, on Jan. 24. The towns of Breckenridge and Frisco both initially passed the mandate requiring the county’s landfill also be the exclusive drop-off location for trash produced within their respective boundaries that same evening, with Dillon the first among them to pass introduction of the ordinance on Jan. 17. Breckenridge unanimously offered its stamp of approval, while Dillon and Frisco both relied on 5-2 voting majorities in favor.
