Peru clerk reflects on short-lived recycling drop off

Posted by wlpo on October 26, 2016

Now that the dust has settled on another recycling event in Peru, what’s next?

Peru City Clerk Dave Bartley says they hope to coordinate with La Salle and have another event in the spring. Bartley says he is very disappointed that they reached their capacity so quick and is sympathetic to those who made an effort to load heavy TV’s into their vehicles only to be turned away.

Bartley says they actually collected about 10,000 pounds more than the announced capacity. They based the capacity limit on budget and previous recycling events.

Peru and La Salle both paid $7,500 for Saturday’s recycling event. Bartley says they have discussed charging individuals for the pick up like Princeton did but that would slow the line down.
