With a two-year contract drawing to a close in less than two months, county officials are reviewing bids from companies for ongoing recycling collections.
"The county is going to be ending a 2-year contract with ECSR [Environmental Coordination Services & Recycling]," said Bekki Titchner, recycling/solid waste coordinator for Elk County. "They've been providing services for our yearly household hazardous waste collection as well as ongoing collections for oil-based paints, pesticides, fluorescent lamps and batteries. The contract expires in April and we're rebidding for another two years.
"I'll be taking the bids to the Solid Waste Authority meeting next Tuesday, where they'll be reviewed and we will then make a recommendation back to the commissioners, and hopefully we can approve someone at the first meeting in March."
