Commissioners Comment May 2009, #1

On this edition of the program, Washington County Recreation Director Jamie Dick talks about summer programs in the parks and in the recreation centers. Registration for programs is limited, and citizens are urged to sign up soon.

County Recycling Coordinator Harvey Hoch talks about new initiatives for Recycling that include Styrofoam packing material and insulation, kitchen oil and grease, and recycling of electronics. The ten-year plan for solid waste and recycling is being updated, and a series of public meetings will be held in May. New methods for recycling are needed, Hoch says, as the drop off bins in 16 locations county-wide are being overwhelmed with the volume of recyclable materials.
