Progress Slows for MRF

Play

Progress on Monroe County’s new recycling facility has been slowed down over the last couple of months. Last summer, the Monroe County Solid Waste Management District Board of Directors and the County Council approved the establishment of a Materials Recycling Facility, or MRF (“murf”). That facility is intended to process and sell the County’s recyclables. A budget of a little over a quarter million dollars was set aside for the project. Later, the county added forty thousand dollars to the budget to cover higher than expected equipment costs. The building, bailers and other equipment have been purchased and the foundation has been laid. However, during recent meetings, the board voted several times against proceeding with some other phases of its development. Today, for our WFHB community report, Assistant News Director David Murphy spoke to three local people who have been involved in the project’s development.
