The ad hoc Recycling and Waste Reduction Committee is charged with making recommendations to the City Council regarding the future of the recycling center; its effectiveness, what form it should take, how it should be funded and whether it should continue to operate. The Committee will also examine City-wide waste reduction and recycling efforts; examine best practices and how they might be applied in Ashland to improve waste diversion and recycling; and examine how the recycling center fits or should fit into those efforts.
The Committee shall, in the course of its work:
Provide ample opportunity for public input;
Consult with Recology and City staff to determine what impact, if any, its recommendations would have on garbage rates; and
Present its recommendations in writing so they can be easily shared with the public.
