The Future of Recycling

The future of recycling in McKean County was the topic of a meeting between State Representative Marty Causer, county commissioners and other officials.

"We want to continue recycling in the county and it's important for our environment, and also to cut down on any illegal dumping," Causer said. "However, with the downtown in the economy there's really no market for much of the recyclables."

Causer explained that the tipping fees currently go toward a fund in Harrisburg that awards grants to recycling programs, but the DEP is discontinuing the grant program. Rustick Landfill is considered a suspension of the recycling program.

The City of Bradford would not be affected.

Mark Adams of Senator Joe Scarnati's office says Elk, Jefferson and Clearfield counties have not suspended recycling yet, but it's still an option.
