On Wednesday, December 12th at 2:00 pm the UCRRA Board is hosting a special meeting to discuss the City of Kingston’s request to extend the acceptance of SSR (Single Stream Recycling) beyond December 31, 2018. VIEW
This is an important step forward as if the City of Kingston and UCRRA can come to the table to agree, our single-stream recycling will continue to be managed by UCRRA through June 30th to allow the city of Kingston to complete its recycling transition plan. Otherwise, we will have to manage it on our own and that doesn’t make any sense in the short term. It’s KingstonCitizens.org’s goal to encourage a compromise.
We ask citizens who can’t attend this week to support UCRRA and the CoK in their negotiations on our behalf.
CoK Mayor Steve Noble
UCRRA Executive Director Timothy Rose, PE
Thank you for your willingness to work together on Kingston’s single-stream recycling transition. We respectfully request that UCRRA continue to accept Kingston’s single-stream recyclables until June 30, 2019 to allow us to complete our recycling transition plan.
Thank you for your consideration. Please distribute our request to all UCRRA board members.
