By Nate Gonner 2/06/2013

             A REPORT ON SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES AND ANALYSIS REVEALED SURPRISING INFORMATION ABOUT THE CITY’S INACTIVITY USING TRASH SERVICES IN NEBRASKA CITY.

 

              FOTH SCIENCE AND ENGINNERING CONSULTANTS WERE HIRED IN AUGUST OF LAST YEAR TO DO A REVIEW OF NEBRASKA CITY’S TRASH SERVICE, CURRENTLY DONE BY ALLIED REFUSE RECYCLING, WHICH DOESN’T REQUIRE RESIDENTS TO SIGN UP FOR THEIR TRASH SERVICE.

 

              THE REPORT SHOWED THAT ONLY 73 PERCENT OF RESIDENTS IN NEBRASKA CITY USE TRASH SERVICES THROUGH ALLIED, AND ONLY ABOUT 3% OF PEOPLE USE ALLIED FOR RECYCLING SERVICES.

 

              CITY ADMINISTRATOR OF NEBRASKA CITY JOE JOHNSON SAYS THE WAY THINGS ARE AT THE MOMENT, RECYCLING IN TOWN IS DISCOURAGED.

 

            JOHNSON AUDIO

 

              JOHNSON ADDED THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE NOT USING SERVICES IS A CONCERN BECAUSE 27% OF PEOPLE IN NEBRASKA CITY ARE DISPOSING OF THEIR TRASH IN OTHER WAYS, COSTING THOSE RESIDENTS WHO DO PAY FOR THE SERVICE TO FOOT THE BILL.

 

              NEBRASKA CITY’S CURRENT CONTRACT WITH ALLIED REFUSE RECYCLING IS UP IN AUGUST OF 2014.
