Pursuant to the continuation of the meeting on the topic of recycling, SB met today with Matt Peard of Monadnock Disposal Services. SB was presented with the idea of double-streamed recycling and looked at locations on the site where containers might be placed for that type of approach. SB discussed certain cost issues and options regarding the possible setup of recycling whereby plastic and metal would be combined as would, potentially, different types of fiber. SB looked at photos from Gilsum taken by Mr. Miner that show a simple approach to managing the recycling facility.
