HINCKLEY TOWNSHIP –– Trustees are looking to contract one company to provide trash and recycling services in the county rather than having multiple companies out on township roads.
There are several companies who take care of trash within the township, Trustee Jim Burns said Tuesday.
“My recommendations have been that you basically offer three levels of service,” said Elizabeth Biggins-Ramer, solid waste coordinator for the county.
“One would be your unlimited cart service and you can utilize, similar to Montville, the large 95- or 96- gallon cart for garbage and the medium size 64- or 65- gallon cart for recycling. In addition to that, weekly, next to your garbage cart you still get your 2 cubic yards of set out that you can utilize.”
The garbage carts, recycling bins and the trash set out are services that other areas in the county have through their contracts with companies such as Kimble.
Biggins-Ramer is still working to outline information for the contract and rules for community members. Biggins-Ramer is looking into how disabled and senior residents can opt out and payment plans for those who bring their trash to locations such as the Medina County Solid Waste District.
This process will be discussed further at future meetings and the board will go out to bid after more information from Biggins-Ramer.
