Commissioners, staff discuss variety of topics


June 20, 2019

County commissioners and employees discussed recycling costs and improvement projects for Whitman County at a workshop session Monday morning.

Commissioner Dean Kinzer reported an update from the recent Solid Waste Advisory Committee meeting. He said it is now $100 a ton to move recycling items out of the county waste transfer station, and $15 a ton for cardboard.

“Costs for recycling are basically upside down,” Kinzer said.

Those using the transfer station to recycle will be the ones who will feel the rising costs, he said.

“They're saying it's not going to change,” Kinzer said.
