County Solid Waste Cost Data
Harden handed out the Riley County Solid Waste financial report to each member
showing income and expenses over the past 25 months and gave a brief overview
of the financial status of the Solid Waste Fund. Harden told the committee
that detailed breakdowns of all categories (e.g., Household Hazardous Waste,
Composting, Recycling, Planning & Promotion, etc.) are available to them upon
advised the committee that they could allow for approximately $80,000 of the
Solid Waste Fund resources.
and approve Chapters 1-3 as revised.
1 - INTRODUCTION
Wedel noted the only change requested by the Foerster Review was to
change Authorization/Legislation - Kansas Solid Waste Management
act of 1970, K.S.A. 65-3406 to K.S.A. 65-3405. A motion was made
and seconded to adopt Chapter 1 as revised. Motion carried unanimously.
2 - EXISTING SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT
Foerster Review is in question of the regional study performed in 1989 by Franklin
Associates, the review states that Franklin has used national figures instead
of regional ones. Wedel disagrees and says the report percentages are indicative
to regional figures and feels the committee has an argument.
commented that she would like to see added to the Waste Generation section
previous percentages along with the updated ones. This would allow the community
to indicate which way the trend is moving. Wedel suggested that a table or
graph be inserted to help show the trend.
the Waste Generation section a change was made in the waste generation rate per
capita from 4.38 pounds per person per day to 4.6 pounds per person per day.
suggestion was made for Wedel to update the estimated population of Riley County
in order to arrive at this figure he asked Larry Ness to get him the current population
of Ft. Riley. Ness in turn requested Ft. Riley’s average “tonnage-in” per
day, which is currently 29.4 tons per day.
the WASTE DISPOSAL METHODS section, paragraph 2, the first sentence should
be changed to read, “Waste placed in sanitary landfills is....”, also the grammar
on page 1, paragraph 2, “the last three years,“ should be changed to read “For
the last three years”. The word “Occasionally” should be deleted from the fourth
paragraph of the WASTE DISPOSAL METHODS.
Mesic suggested that the Household Hazardous Waste Collection Center section include
the blurb, “Refer to Chapter 9” for additional information on Household
Leonardville yard waste permitted site needs to be added to the plan. The site
is located southeast of Leonardville and allows for the disposal of trees, shrubs,
brush and leaves, no grass clippings. The permit allows burning for disposal.
indicated that the sentence in paragraph 2 of CURRENT SOLID WASTE PLANNING
STATUS that reads, “This includes numerous meetings....” be changed
to “This included numerous meetings....”
suggested that Chapter 2 be tabled until all revisions are made.
3 - PROGRAM GOALS, OBJECTIVES AND POLICES
revisions were made to this chapter. A motion was made and seconded to accept
Chapter 3 as non-revised. Motion carried unanimously.
revisions of Chapter 4 - Waste Reduction
suggested that another survey be done, a repeat of the 1989 survey which was
performed by Franklin Associates. Mesic inquired as to the possibility of
using the first survey as the baseline. Garton felt this could be done by
using the same procedures. Wedel suggested that maybe K-State would
be interested in performing the survey. Wedel also thought that a
grant could be acquired to help with expenses. Betty Book told the
committee that the results wanted could probably be obtained from
one truck of trash.
a lengthy discussion a decision was made to move Education to a chapter of its
own in the plan.
asked that each member of the committee submit to him one Waste Reduction
idea by March 1, 1996. This would either be in the form of a policy that
the committee would adopt or an action statement. And also included in this assignment,
each member should write down any modifications that are needed in this
next meeting will include revisions to Chapter 2 and Chapter 4 with a discussion
on Chapter 5 - Recycling.
revisions of Table of Contents
committee decided to add the following chapters to the plan:
4 - Education
9 - Household Hazardous Waste
an Appendix should be added.
on tire recycling program
Feyerharm told the committee that the Fish and Game Waste Tire Recycling program
was no longer an option. They have discontinued their program until the need
Waste Tire Disposal Plan was handed out to each committee member and a brief
. overview of the plan was given. Garton suggested that staff check into
how Leonardville and some of the other cities in the county are dealing
with the waste tire problem and if there is a need for help from the
county. Ernie Jordan offered to talk to some of the stations up
north to see what their feelings are.
told the committee about Shilling Asphalt exploring the idea of rubberized asphalt,
a process of powdered rubber integrated into a mix with fly ash. Wedel suggested
that maybe some Riley County roads might be candidates for this study along
with students from K-State to perform the study. This project could possibly
funded with grant money. Wedel told the committee he would have additional
information for the next meeting.
date and time for next meeting/Adjourn
requested that the meetings be changed to the 4th Tuesday of each month. The
next meeting, however, will be the third Tuesday 19 March 1996, 7:00 P.M. due
to scheduling conflicts. The next meeting after that will be the 4th Tuesday
23 April 1996. 7:00 P.M.
ITEM - HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE SITE
Peterson, Weed Director, asked the committee to assist him with the relocation
of the Household Hazardous Waste operation. Garton felt the committee
should formally address the commission to appoint the S.W.M.C. Committee
or form another committee to oversee this request. Garton will submit a
letter to the Board of County Commissioners requesting this appointment.
meeting was adjourned.
