Jericho Considers Consolidated Waste Collection System

07/05/12 2:03PM

In Jericho, town officials are deciding whether to move to a consolidated waste and recycling collection system.

Currently, one company collects trash and another gathers recycling.

A study released this year finds there could be cost savings and environmental benefits if those were combined. But Jericho's Select Board says a number of questions still need to be addressed.

So the town is evaluating whether consolidation can reduce costs, decrease truck traffic and increase proper disposal without driving up costs.
