Recycling center on City Council agenda
The drop-off recycling center in Jamestown will be open Tuesday, Jan. 2, according to Ralph Friebel, owner of The Recycling Center of North Dakota. Whether it remains open the rest of the month is still to be decided.
Friebel said he would not continue to operate the drop-off recycling center the rest of the month if the city of Jamestown was halting the $5,000 per month recycling subsidy as of Dec. 31. The Jamestown Public Works Committee voted to end the subsidy at that time during its November meeting.
However, the city attorney is on the Jan. 2 City Council agenda concerning the subsidy for the month of January.
Friebel said he would operate the drop-off recycling center on Jan. 2 but make a decision about the rest of the month after the City Council meeting.
Friebel is in the process of implementing residential pickup of recyclable materials. That process could start in February.
Leo Ryan, city attorney, and Jeff Fuchs, city administrator, could not be reached for comment Friday.
