Recycling ends in Weatherly

Published March 19. 2019 01:26PM

Weatherly Borough will end its recycling program because officials can’t find a contractor to run it.

The borough’s contract with Solomon Container Services runs out on April 1. Mayor/council president Tom Connors said Solomon has informed the borough that it won’t continue after that date.

Manager Harold Pudliner said in a recent report to borough council that the search for a replacement has been unsuccessful.

“We are searching for a new provider, but with market conditions at an all-time low, it is doubtful we will be able to secure another contractor,” he said.

At one time, Weatherly had curbside recycling. Then Carbon County offered a recycling drop-off area. When the county ended its program in 2013 due to budget cuts, the borough hired Solomon.

The borough had been paying $300 per month for Solomon to empty the recycling bins at the park.

Councilman Jeffrey Miller said he recently read that Solomon was increasing its pickups in nearby Banks Township. He couldn’t understand that, noting that the company’s pickups were inconsistent.

Connors said they reached out to the borough’s contracted trash hauler, County Waste (which is not affiliated with Carbon County). It didn’t respond.

“We do have feelers out at different places, but a lot of people won’t return your call when you mention recycling,” Connors said.

There is not enough money to be made in recycling. The lives of loser republicans revolve around profit, so they would rather pollute than loose 3 cents. Another ⊥rump MAGA move. Republican business owners were happy to suck up the subsidies. Government incentives have run out, now they have to rely on their acumen. Lol.. Such as it is. Recycling companies will bury America under garbage. ⊥rump losers like rambo blissfully swim in the trash while drooling over images of commrade j. kushner dancing in his head. This sick little rambo loses sleep over my posts. Pathetic, right? You'll always find his nervous breakdowns in reply to my enlightened, insightful posts.
He uses non sense phrases like "wrong side of history" and "full display". Even more disturbing. rambo will use homosexual innuendo like, "on you like a wet blanket"? What a creepy, sick mind. Its all there in black and white.
He is the self proclaimed minister of the Republican Reichsministerium für Volksaufklärung und Propaganda.
Just like loser ⊥rump, all he has is rightwing verbal diarrhea, and veiled threats of violence. Nothing but the rants of a diseased brain, & the manifestation of guilt for handing America over to a psychotic dick-tator.
This is crazy RUK. You are a condescending punk. Now you tie recycling to Republicans. Recycling in Weatherly has been phased out because of inability to find a contractor. It is an economic issue. You see,it costs money to do the right thing. Not everyone is aboard with that. Of course, you make everything political. This is a result of your short-sighted low intellect unchanging warped viewpoint. That is OK, we all know about your intellectual inadequacies. Keep it up! You are on full display. Half of your post insults me. That is OK. I can take it. You have no standards at all. You should clean up your dirty act. You insult President Trump. I am going to shine the light on your ignorance. How many buildings have your name on them? How many Billions of $ are you worth? What businesses did you start/manage? How many thousands of $ did you donate to charities? Zero is the answer. You are a zero. You are an inept lunatic insulting people greater/superior to you. Joke on you brudda! America is great in spite of jerks like you. MAGA!
