-I t r Cape Gazette NEWS FRIDAY JANUARY 22 - MONDAY. JANUARY 25, 2010 115 Lewes to recycle city's recycling plans By Henry J. Evans Jr, hevans@capegazette.com Lewes Mayor and Council will have to rethink who will handle the city's cttrbside recycling con- tract when Delaware Solid Waste Authoritygets out of the recy- cling business. In December, mayor and coun- cil approved a contract with Delaware Solid Waste Authority (DSWA) for $70,175 to provide curbside recycling pickup. The one-year contract would have provided 24 pickups a year for the city's 505 customers at a cost of $55 per household. But since Lewes awarded the contract, Gov, Jack Markell launched a statewide recycling initiative - universal recycling - that would end DSWRs involve- ment in curbside recycling pick- up. Lewes Mayor Jim Ford said how Lewes moves forward with its recycling program will de- pend on a variety of things that are not yet de- termined. Ford said the city could opt to use the sec- ond-lowest bid it had received for curbside pickup. Inland Services Corp. Jim Ford of Laguna Vista, Texas, bid $72,230. Ford said what's still unclear is whether transfer of ownership of DSWA curbside collection carts is possible and whether Inland Services could still offer the same price as initially bid. Those who don't want to sub- scribe to curbside recycling be- cause they plan on using recy- cling igloos in various locations throughout the state will proba- bly have to reconsider. Ford said under Markell's uni- versal recy- cling proposal there would be no igloos. Markell's proposal, in- troduced earli- Jack Markell er.this month, would require all municipalities and private waste haulers to provide curb- side recycling pickup service. A dedicated recycling contain- er would be provided, however, recycling would not be mandato- ry. Over a period of time the state's 5-cents returnable bottle Art League Continued from page 13 square feet total - is out of Char- acter with the residential neigh- borhood around it. "The board held that a build- ing of that size, in the heart of the town's residential district, wOuld be out of place," the brief says. r "The board also found that the growth of RAL itself, as well as the proposed increase in the size of buildings, would produce 'campus sprawl," with additionM traffic, parking problems and quasi-commercial activity." In conclusion, the brief says, "The board properly considered the opinions of experts and the townspeople and weighed the impact of the proposed construc- tion on the community. "RAL did not meet the strin- gent requirements necessary for the grant of a use variance. The board's decision denying the variance is supported by sub- stantial evidence, and the Superi- or Court's decision - upholding the board's well-reasoned deci- sion - should be affirmed," the brief said.

The fee would no]onger be a returnable deposit and retailers would no longer be required to handle returned bot- ties. The program would provide municipalities and private trash haulers with bottle fee money to defray the startup costs of curb- side recycling. Markell expects the proposed plan to increase recycling and re- duce the amount of trash going into DSWA landfills. The result would be lower costs for trash haulers. Under the proposaL, the cumu- lative savings is expected to make recycling cost-neutral for consumers. The Markell plan would set target recycling goals for trash haulers, who would face penal- ties for not meeting targets. The proposal calls for chang- ing the bottle deposit to a bottle fee this year. Trash haulers would begin universal recycling by late 2011 or early 2012.
