Mix 97, Thursday, Jan 28, 2010.
A consultant’s report on integrated waste management is being circulated to the council’s of eight Hastings-Quinte municipalities. The report covers a publicly-owned garbage transfer station, curbside organic pickup, and energy from waste system. A publicly-owned transfer station would save about a million dollars annually. And Chair of the Integrated Waste Committee, Tom Lafferty says the municipalities would have more control over the tipping fees. The energy from waste system is a big ticket item…65-million dollars… with the possibility of selling electricity to the grid. But Councillor Lafferty emphasizes…it’s all just being looked at. The eight municipalities include Belleville, Quinte West, Prince Edward County and four in Hastings County.
