Recycling Again Takes Center Stage At Dickinson County Board Of Supervisors Meeting

Tue 6-11-2019

(Spirit Lake)-- Recycling was again a topic of discussion at today's (Tues.) Dickinson County Board of Supervisors meeting.

Leann Reinsbach, Milford City Administrator, requested the county move its recycling drop-off site for rural residents currently located at the city's public works facility, to a different location. Reinsbach says the city has installed cameras at the site in an effort to crack down on illegal dumping. But she says city staff no longer can take the time to review the footage as the illegal dumping continues, and they want the county to move it. One possibility of moving it to the county's recycling facility on the east edge of Milford was discussed. No action was taken though as the supervisors want to discuss the matter some more.

The supervisors also met this (Tues.) morning with Mike Flannegan of Shamrock Recycling, with which the county currently contract with for curbside recycling pickup. The county's contract with that firm runs out June 31st. No action on renewing the contract was taken as the supervisors indicated once again they want to send out a request for proposals. Flannegan did indicate he would be willing to grant the county a 30-day extension of the current contract while they do that.
