The Pondera County Recycling Coalition (PCRC) met recently.
The Treasurer’s report approved for approximately $242 for supplies to build two recycling signs for the recycling building.
The tonnage report stated that 1,846 pounds of aluminum have been hauled while more aluminum, tin and paper are at Mike Townsend’s salvage yard.
Headwater’s Recycling Cooperation contacted the PCRC and stated that their hauling cost is $4.50 a mile. They strongly recommended that the PCRC purchase its own baler.
Ron Collyer mentioned at the meeting that a new baler is about $20,000. Mayor John Shevlin reported that Cindy Fuson is not interested in selling her baler as she may want to pursue her own recycling business.
