Skykesville recycling group recommends baler SOUTHEAST -- Sykesville * Eldersburg * Gamber

May 24, 1993

The Sykesville Recycling Committee has recommended the town use a $13,000 state grant to purchase a high-density paper and cardboard baler.

The Town Council opened two bids for the machine at its May 10 meeting. Before awarding the bid, members said they wanted to compare all the equipment specifications. They will reconsider the bids at the 7 p.m. meeting today.

Max-Pak of Rainsville, Ala., offered the lower bid, $9,220 including shipping and installation. LTR Corp. of Columbia bid $14,000.

Sykesville has been leasing a smaller baler for about six months from a private contractor.

"We are busting at the seams with the old baler," said James L. Schumacher, town manager. "We need a larger one as soon as possible."
