Monday, July 2, 2001The Journal asked Sandra Benson, Fillmore County Recycling Education Coordinator to respond to Ms. Dorns letter.

I understand the frustration Patty Dorn and others may feel if they think that all of their efforts at recycling are being wasted. But, theyre not being wasted! Fillmore County definitely has a (mandatory) recycling program. In fact, it has expanded the list of recyclables. That list has been published in all of our papers. If anyone has missed it, they can call 765-2245 for a copy.)

Whats going on with the recycling program?

The County has a contract with Waste Management to transport and process recyclables from the recycling sheds and the Resource Recovery Center, and to transport the landfill from the transfer station.

However, the County does not contract for city haulers. Each city contracts with the hauler of their choice. The hauler, by County Ordinance, must pick up and deliver recyclables separately to a recycling center.

Each city and their hauler work together for a pickup schedule and charge for the services. Lanesboro has a contract with Waste Management.

Right now Waste Management is using a one-pass truck in Lanesboro. This truck has 2 compartments so recyclables and landfill can be picked up curbside at the same time. The recyclables are kept separate from the landfill waste in the truck.

They may discontinue use of this truck soon because of its size and lack of maneuverability, but they intend to continue to keep recyclables separate.

I encourage residents to call their city if they have a question or concern on their waste service. the cities hold the contracts with the individual haulers and know their won schedules and details.

However, if any resident has a question on how, what, where or why on any solid waste issue (including recycling), I welcome their calls! The county is hoping this new waste sort system will increase its recycling rate to 35%.

Thanks for your recycling efforts Patty and keep it up!
