Victory Claimed in Garbage War

Colusa County Rural Residents can claim victory from the reconsideration of mandatory trash service from Recology.

Earlier this year residents in the unincorporated areas of Colusa County were faced with mandatory trash collection service from the county in lieu of upgrades at the counties only solid waste transfer station in Maxwell.

“After the special board of supervisors meeting on June 30th, an ad-hoc committee assembled by the board met with Recology regarding the issue and they have reconsidered mandatory trash collection,” said Colusa County Chief Administrative Officer, Robert Muszar.

No reason was given for Recology’s reconsideration.

“It is my understanding that Recology has already begun picking up unwanted containers,” said Muszar.

Although mandatory trash collection service is no longer an issue in the unincorporated areas in the county, those living within the city limits of Colusa and Williams are still required to have garbage service.

Muszar said that the ad-hoc committee will be meeting again with Recology to discuss the new contract with Recology and the Maxwell Transfer Station upgrades.

“We hope to bring the board details of the new contract at the September 23 meeting,” said Muszar. ■
