Adair Solid Waste looking to Pulaski Co. for glass recycling

Related: Letter to CM from Guy Babin : Where can you recycle glass in Adair County?

Guy Babin forwards the following rapid response to his email, from AC Deputy CJE Andrea Waggener, dated Wednesday, August 16, 2017

"Mr. Babin, Unfortunately, glass recycling is an expensive process and the vendors we used in the past have stopped accepting that material. We have been unable to find a different vendor capable of taking and processing glass. Additionally we have a storage issue at the Recycling Center. There isn't much space there to collect large quantities of heavy glass while housing full loads of cardboard, newsprint, and shredded paper.

"I have been in the Judge Executive's office since last October and in that time have yet to find a reasonable solution to glass recycling.

"I have been in talks frequently with Lindsey Wilson College's Sustainability Coordinator and he has also been unable to find a suitable solution to the glass recycling dilemma.

"I have heard recently that Somerset will begin collecting glass again and we hope to be able to collect in Adair County and transport to Somerset but those details have not been determined yet.

"We appreciate your dedication to recycling responsibly and hope to find a solution in the near future.

'I will be attending a meeting with the state's Division of Waste Management next Tuesday and Wednesday and will be asking for assistance to solve this problem. Thank you, Andrea Waggener Adair County Deputy Judge Executive/Co-Solid Waste Coordinator."
