County might pay to ex­pand re­cy­cling

Austin American-Statesman - - COMMUNITY NEWS - — FARZAD MASHHOOD, AMER­I­CAN-STATES­MAN STAFF

County staffers are ask­ing for re­cy­cling at the vast ma­jor­ity of county of­fices out­side of down­town Austin, which lack on-site re­cy­cling or only re­cy­cle pa­per.

County staffers are rec­om­mend­ing county com­mis­sion­ers hire a ven­dor to pick up re­cy­cling at 26 of­fices.

A new con­tract for sin­glestream re­cy­cling — which ac­cepts plas­tics, glass and alu­minum — would cost up to $66,900, ac­cord­ing to a county es­ti­mate.

The com­mis­sion­ers meet at 9 a.m. Tues­day at 700 Lavaca St. in Austin.
