Recycling Key to Waste Management Future Plan

Waste Management is announcing a change to the recycling station in the parking lot of the SPD store on Zion St., and some soon to come changes at the McCourtney Rd. Transfer Station. Waste Management local District Manager Steve Cameron says the recycling station at SPD in Nevada City has been sold to RePlanet. That’s the same company that already operates the Collection Station at the Pine Creek Shopping Center. Cameron says Waste Management is working on an agreement with the new operators ¬†¬† to provide containers for co-mingled recyclables at SPD, so customers can still bring in those items. He says they will also redeem CRV items.

Cameron says co-mingle recycling has made a major impact on the elimination of roadside dumping in western Nevada County and Waste Management  realizes the importance of continuing to make easy, proper disposal available.

Waste Management is currently at about 50% recycling, but they will have to do better in years to come.

To reach that goal Waste Management is planning some major renovations to the McCourtney Road Transfer Station.

Waste Management is under contract with Nevada County to provide neighborhood pick up and to run the McCourtney Road Transfer Station in a way that will allow the county to reach recycling goals.

The co-mingling containers in front of Penney's were removed well over a year ago. When are they going to be replaced? For anyone south of Grass Valley, and who dropped off recyclables there, going to any of the other three places can add 15 miles to travel - not a low cost alternative.
