County hears recycling proposal

Brown County Courthouse

(KNZA)--The owner of a local trash disposal service would like to get a recycling program going again.

RJ Hamilton, with Falls City-based Hamilton Recycling and Disposal, met with the Brown County Commission on Monday to discuss his efforts.

Hamilton said the Falls City recycling center shut down in December 2019 due to the failure of some equipment, leaving a void.

He said he would like to get several counties involved in a regional recycling program, with the Falls City location serving as a sorting center and drop off locations in participating counties.

Commissioners were open to providing a drop-off location in the county, but wanted more information before committing any funding toward a recycling program.

Commission Chairman Rich Lehmkuhl asked Hamilton to return with a detailed plan at a later date.

Hamilton also requested a change to the fee structure at the county landfill.  He said some of his competitors are getting a discounted rate.

The Commission will discuss the situation with the landfill supervisor and get back with Hamilton.
