HEARING REQUIRED:  No Hearing Required

 

SUMMARY:

                                          

The City’s Sanitation Services Department began a city-wide recycling program in fiscal year 2009. By converting twice a week garbage collection to once-per-week garbage collection and once-per-week recyclable material collection, customers receive the same level of service at no additional cost. 

 

In order for the City to continue to offer a recyclable collection service, it must have an agreement for recyclable processing service. At present, Emerald Coast Utilities Authority (ECUA) operates the only Municipal Recycling Facility (MRF) in our region that is capable of processing the recyclable material collected by Sanitation Services. The proposed Interlocal Agreement clarifies the terms and conditions under which the City may deliver its collected recyclables to the ECUA MRF.

 

The market for recyclable materials fluctuates greatly. Costs associated with processing the recyclable materials collected by Sanitation Services will be based on the Average Market Value (AMV) per ton of recyclables.
