In today’s EcoReport feature, the latest on Monroe County’s effort to implement a materials recovery facility, or MURF.
In a 4-3 vote, the Monroe County Solid Waste Management District board approved a 2015 budget with funds appropriated for a clean stream materials recovery facility Thursday evening, August 14. The facility would not be dual-stream, meaning it would only process “clean” recyclables like glass, aluminum and plastics. It would not sort recyclable material out of a co-mingled waste stream.
