Commissioners, trash haulers will meet today


May 27, 1994

Carroll's county commissioners are scheduled to meet with private garbage haulers at 3 p.m. today to discuss whether the haulers will collect yard waste and whether they will consider charging by the bag instead of by the ton.

Commissioner Julia W. Gouge, who insisted on scheduling the meeting, said she would not make a decision about whether to increase the county's fee for dumping in landfills until after she talked with haulers.

Comptroller Eugene C. Curfman has recommended increasing the tipping fee of $40 per ton by $9.05 per ton.

If the increase is approved, it will take effect July 1, the first day of fiscal 1995.

The commissioners are to discuss their decision to require that yard waste be separated from garbage. They also will discuss a system of charging by the bag, which would be cheaper for residents who recycle and generate less trash.

Carroll has no countywide trash collection; residents must hire private haulers.

The meeting will be in Room 300A of the County Office Building.
