Environmental Management Committee Meeting
Tuesday, March 21, 2017
Dear Business Owners and Managers,
As some of you may know, Republic Services recently restructured their residential rates to encourage recycling and composting. The City's Environmental Management Committee (EMC) was instrumental in developing the new system and one of the major benefits was the ability to divert food waste from regular garbage that is incinerated to a composting facility with lower disposal costs. The EMC is eager to work on a similar program for commercial customers and needs your input to make it easy and effective for you.
The March EMC meeting will begin our discussions on this topic. Also on the agenda will be discussion for adoption and implementation procedures for a new ordinance banning single use plastic bags and food grade Styrofoam.
