In Orange County, trash gets its day

Posted by on Tue, Apr 9, 2013 at 8:00 AM

The future of Orange County's celebrated recycling program is before county commissioners tonight.

County commissioners will consider a number of proposals—including the widely-reviled prospect of privatization—when they meet at 7 p.m. in Hillsborough.

Expect a full story on the recycling program and its funding challenges in Wednesday's print edition of INDY Week, but in the meantime, sit in on tonight's meeting if you want an admittedly complicated primer. The program touts an unprecedented 59 percent waste reduction rate in the last two decades, but a 2012 court decision has put the program's funding in jeopardy.

Obtain tonight's agenda here.
