Howick and Kimzey hope to approach the hoard at the firs November meeting. They plan to 'make thei recommendation, outlining the I advantages and disadvantages.' and showing why the project is economically feasible for the city. Then they will list alternatives that were studied and the positive and negative points for each. 1 The recommended. ' proposal .; calls for nine trash collection i containers to be p l a c e d ; throughout the city. T h e ; trash containers would h a v e ; to he purchased for long - tern · use), that citizens from t h e ! area could deposit newspapers '· In them · The newspapers in the con- '· tainers would 'oe collected on ' a regular basis by a city-owned V compactor-collector truck and 5 delivered to a suitable dealer ; for shredding, baling and ; resale. The report emphasized J the importance ol a coordinated ; a n d extensive education ; program for the public. · FOLLOWS EXPERIMENT ) The report was drawn up '. following an experiment by the ; committee ' last spring. The [ c o m m i t t e e a n d volunteers ; picked up newspapers t h r e e ; Saturdays in a row from the ' front curbs of residences. '· But in researching various I possibilities, committee mem- '. hers found the one to be '( recommended to the hoard to ; he most advantageous a n d ; economical. · Kimzey pointed out that all ; costs involved in the recom- · mended proposal averaged out ' to $6.60 per ton cost to the city. ' Even with the newspaper *. market presently down, the city I should still be able to collect ! more than $6.60 a ton for loose ; newspapers, he said. ; The market is down at · present 'out is expected to rise · again as housing activity in- · creases. Recovered newspapers ' are mostly used in roofing ! materials and cardboard. ,' The greatest disadvantage is I that the newspaper pick-up will ; not be door to door. The report · authors pointed out. However, ; centrally-placed containers .will allow non-Fayetteyille a r e a · residents to participate. ! The committee also : decided I to investigate further a proposal ! from Charles Pryor of SI. ! Louis, Mo., who offered to pick r u p the city's .cardboard and newspapers. Pryor indicated he was more interested in the cardboard collection. Committee members feel that he might he able to handle cardboard, and then move on to handling newspapers and other recyclable materials.
