I just read of the controversy among county council members regarding Frederick County’s landfill policy; and that representatives Shreve and Delauter would like this issue vetted in public meetings.
I want to point out that the county hosted six public meetings throughout the county over the last year related to what to do with waste in Frederick County.
A high value was placed on efforts to increase recycling, reuse... and decrease the quantity of waste landfilled, by the public. The trash company indicated they have a contract to remove surplus government furniture.
Perhaps this hauler, or another local hauler, may want to pursue an addition to their business of taking items like surplus furniture, and connecting them to a resource that collects surplus furniture for repair, reuse and resale.
Decreasing waste and reusing materials is exactly the point of Zero Waste. The public has made it clear it wants to move in this direction regarding waste, and the county has indicated it intends to go in this direction. Expanding a business may make more sense in the long run, than throwing money away in a lawsuit.
