Lisa Beursken, Erie County Solid Waste District, was present at the meeting along with Duke Fultz from FSI Waste Disposal. They were present at the meeting to discuss upcoming changes to the recycling program in Erie County. As Erie County discontinues having the recycling bins located in the individual Townships, it will be the responsibility of the Township to continue with some form of recycling program. Several programs were discussed, ranging from the installation of mechanical compactors, one for cardboard and another for plastic, cans and glass, to separate bins that would hold the different recyclables. The possibility of applying for grant monies was discussed. With the County phasing out the recycling bins by 2013 it was agreed that time was short to develop some form of program. The Trustees thanked Mr. Fultz and Ms. Beursken for coming to the meeting.

Matt Thayer and Don Tommas were present at the meeting to discuss a recent warning letter Mr. Thayer had received from the Oxford Township Zoning Department.
