Mayor Gary Christenson has proposed the elimination of the PAYT trash program and dual-stream recycling system. The new proposal calls for city issued barrels for both trash and recycling.

“I’m pleased that we were able to come up with a proposal that is acceptable to our trash provider, JRM Hauling and Recycling, Inc. (JRM) and the City,” commented Mayor Christenson. “Make no mistake about it, finding a compromise has been an ongoing and difficult task especially considering the instability in the trash and recycling markets. It has taken more than a dozen meetings with JRM over the past several years to reach this modification.”
