COUNTY BOARD VOTES TO ESTABLISH RECYCLINC COMMITTEE

Recycling was once again a topic of conversation at the Bond County Board meeting Tuesday night.  Emily Hartmann from the Bond County Soil and Water Conservation District and Bob Lindberg from FAYCO were on hand to discuss the proposed plan for the county to construct a recycling collection single-hoop building on land owned by Soil and Water on Route 40 near McDonald’s in Greenville.  Hartmann said FAYCO requires the building to be at least 1,200 square feet to allow for once a week pick-up. 

Hartmann said FAYCO, who is coming from Vandalia, is not interested in picking up recyclables in parts of the county west of Greenville due to the transportation costs.  Hartmann supplied estimates on pouring the concrete and putting up the building at around $18,000.00.  The county would rock the area leading back to the building once a year, carry liability insurance, and pay Soil and Water $100.00 a month rent.  The contract would be for three years.  Soil and Water would provide lighting, serve as the contact point for residents with questions, and coordinate the program with FAYCO.


After some discussion the board voted to form a recycling committee of Wes Pourchot and Eldon Young to look further into the agreement and to have State’s Attorney Chris Bauer look at the contract.
