County, town talk 50-50 split on operations cost
A popular recycling center in Willits will remain open for the time being after the town of Basalt and Pitkin County discussed an informal agreement during Tuesday evening’s joint meeting.
The county is looking at a 50-50 share of costs with the town to keep the needed facility operating and recyclables out of the landfill.
Basalt had said it would no longer help fund the facility, which is operated by Waste Management, come the end of April. The town has been subsidizing the recycling drop-off center to the tune of $3,300 per month since September.
