present contributed some useful ideas to the site.

Update on 2003 Recycling
Directory Julie reported that she would like some new ideas for the
directory and its distribution. Alan Ladd was asked if the Education
Subcommittee would be interested in assisting Julie with this. Ladd will ask
them and get back with Julie. Since the directory will soon be available on
the website a suggestion was made to print the directory every other year.
This will result in significant savings to the Solid Waste Fund. The next
directory will be for years 2003 – 2004.
