Public Input Sought for Proposed Single Hauler Model

Public Input for Single Hauler Model

Board of Trustees Meeting, Monday, March 18, beginning at 7:00 p.m.


At the March 18 Board of Trustees meeting, the Board will consider a single waste hauler model in Lyons, per the recommendation of the Sustainable Futures Commission (SFC). The proposed model would convert residential waste collection to curbside pick-up by a single hauler, and could include recycling and composting. Each household's rate would be determined by the amount of landfill waste collected (normally established by the size of the container), which is referred to as a Pay-As-You-Throw structure.

The intent of this model is to decrease the amount of waste sent to landfills, increase recycling and compost, and reduce the carbon footprint of multiple trucks.

The Board of Trustees invites the community to voice their support or concerns on the matter, during the public input period at the March 18 Meeting.
