We will hold our January ICON meeting next Monday the 28th, 7 p.m., at the First Church of the Brethren, Yale and Ash. Dan Winters, General Manager of Allied Waste, will be our guest speaker.
The executive committee had a chance to meet Dan last November. He has a lot of information to provide us regarding Allied’s recycling and waste pick up program. Since the mayor and aldermen have recently approved changes to Springfield’s ordinance, one that ICON supported, I believe there is much we can learn about what Allied can provide.
This presentation is part of our efforts to better understand what services we can expect from the haulers regarding both garbage and waste removal. We plan to actively support and promote the new recycling efforts of the city but will continue to lobby for changes in garbage collection.
Look forward to seeing you Monday night. If you have not yet join ICON for 2013, you can register at the meeting.
