Sullivan Recycling Survey and Opportunity for Comments
The City of Sullivan has announced that it will discontinue its sponsored recycling program. The last days for recycling at the Sullivan Street Department were November 13th through the 15th.
The City Council is open to feedback from its residents and customers regarding the recycling program.
If the City is to continue to sponsor a recycling program, it will need to be funded by its property tax owners or its utility bill customers.
Do you feel that the recycling program is something that should be funded by the City of Sullivan?
It is assumed that non-residents of Sullivan and non-utility customers of Sullivan are using the recycling bins. Some feel that the City of Sullivan shouldn’t spend a significant amount of money on a program that is used by many people that don’t help pay for the program. The cost for the City of Sullivan to have three recycling dumpsters twice a month will be $25,920.00.
One solution that has been offered is to place a fee on the utility bill of each customer to help fund the recycling program. If the City were to adopt this practice, it would cost just under $1.00 per month per utility customer. Would you be in favor of a “recycling fee” being placed on your utility bill to help fund the recycling program?
