VI. Briefing/Discussion/Decision ~ Request Approval for Authorization - Northern Recycling Operations Contract Renewal
Through Carroll County's membership in the Northeast Maryland Waste Disposal Authority (NMWDA), a contract was entered into on the County's behalf for the Operation, Transportation and Processing of Single Stream Recyclable Materials from Northern's Recycling Facility. The contract with Recycle America is on an annual renewal basis. The County and Authority has researched short term alternatives and none have proven economically viable. The Department of Public Works intends to bid this in the next fiscal year to coincide with the waste transfer contract to procure better rates for both services. The start date of the renewed recycling contract is July 1, 2016. Renewal notification is due April 1, 2016.
