**Hats off to STARS!***
Actually Aces High Services recycles single stream and takes it to Eagle County MRF.
Twin Enviro Services and Old West Sanitation collect recyclable materials curbside, sorts/separates by hand, and then hauls to Grand Junction. So there are alternatives to Waste Management.
Milner is not the only landfill that has the double charge rule, many in Colorado do.
maybe you could start your own landfill.
Actually 2 years ago the landfill charged by the cubic yard. The state required the new scale to be put in. After the scale was installed standard pick up load prices were established and in many cases the old price was actually higher. I work in the office so no I don't "chastise" anyone nor do I "get off" on any kind of power trip. We are just doing our job and of course it is our business if someone spills a load two miles down the road. We have employees picking trash on all of County Rd 205. Landfill workers do not decide on the price assessed on the tipping fees. We are not law enforcement we are responsible.
mark - who are you calling a jackwagon?? I work at the Milner Landfill and we are subject to state regulations. Did you know that it is a LAW for all loads to be covered? How much do you charge at your business? It costs a lot to run a landfill...taking into consideration cost of equipment, regulators, employees, construction, staying in compliance, and much more. Obviously you find it easier to name call and whine then think.
Hope someone told them about the Milner Mall :)
Yes we can talk about this. It is hard to know what the person was thinking after the act. I think people that do it if they could do it over they wouldn't do it. It does affect everyone that knows them.
Interesting. How much energy does it take to run trucks all over city, county, bail, semis to Denver, unload, re-sort, reload...how green is that? Seems like there must be a way to utilize local resources. Call Waste Management and get sent to Arizona or someplace, they're not even a local company...seems like we could be a lot greener keeping it local. I would consider the local companies like Twin Enviro, Aces High or Old West before WM.
Is it too much work to move forward when there is conflicting statements?
