Mr. Stewart reported that he discovered that recyclables that are enclosed in a tied plastic bag are being sorted into the waste going to the landfill instead of being opened and dumped into the correct materials bin. He said when he questioned why it was being done that way, the only answer he received was “because that’s the way it’s done”. There was discussion about the ever continuing problems with the recycling bin and the messes that occurs around it. Mr. Kelley reported that when the container is full people just dump bags, and loose materials on the ground outside the container This results in stuff getting blown around the area and into the surrounding fields. He said there have been times where he has spent hours there picking up the messes. He said the worst part is people who dump their garbage there instead of recyclables.

Communications were reviewed.
There was discussion about the purposed new storage building, different types of insulation, concreting all the floor vs doing one side or bay. Questions about whether a project manager should be hired to oversee the construction of the new building. Mr. Stewart stressed concerns about the lack of forward movement on the project, he said every month that we pay for the storage on Thomas Road is money that could be going toward the construction. All agreed that the project needed to move forward, but careful planning would eliminate problems down the road. One thing that was agreed upon, the building would be located on the Kimball property.
