A citizen-led recycling committee tasked with investigating residential curbside recycling options for Broken Arrow will tour a Metropolitan Environmental Trust (M.e.t.) recycling center on Monday, December 19.
Earlier this year, a survey was conducted asking BA residents about their satisfaction with the current trash service and desire for recycling options. The survey showed that residents overwhelmingly like the current trash service, but are interested in recycling as well. More than 80% of respondents in the city-wide survey stated they would make an effort to recycle more if curbside recycling was available.
To look into the best way to incorporate a recycling program with our current services, the City Council established a citizens recycling committee, which held its first meeting on November 29. The committee is expected to make a recommendation for a program in July 2017. If the City Council approves the program, curbside recycling is expected to start in late 2017.
Members of the committee include Councilor Johnnie Parks, Councilor Scott Eudey (as an alternate for Councilor Parks), Jim Hoffmeister, Tom Hahn, Russell Peterson, Dawn Seing, Jill Spurgeon, Michelle Bergwall, Vicky Randolph, EJ Hardwick, Becky Wood, Tom Chatterton, Chris Taylor, and Peggy Striegl.
