City, County increase recycling money

The phrase “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure” is becoming less and less true in Washington County. Supervisor Jim Rosien says the rising costs of transportation, combined with the declining value of recyclable materials is putting a financial squeeze on the local recycling facility. Yesterday the supervisors approved a measure that gives the recycling center $12,000 more of county money. The city of Washington recently approved increasing their financial support as well. The facility is shared between the city and county.
