Pay-As-You-Throw Public Forum for Summit County Residents
- This meeting has passed.
Thursday, January 20, 2022|6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
To support Summit County’s communitywide goal to increase landfill diversion to 40% by 2035, High Country Conservation Center, with support of the Towns and Summit County government, is introducing “Pay as You Throw” (PAYT) and “Universal Recycling Ordinances” (URO). Developing consistent recycling ordinances across all local government jurisdictions has been shown to dramatically increase recycling in communities.
Pay as You Throw (PAYT) will apply to residents who have curbside trash collection with an individual bin. PAYT will incentivize recycling by including recycling with trash service and by allowing residents to choose the size of their trash bin. The less residents throw away, the less they will pay. This is similar to a water bill, where you pay by usage.
The ordinances and implementation plan will be created by engaging local stakeholders to ensure the plan is tailored to Frisco and the Summit County community.
This meeting is one of three public forums, and is for Summit County Residents, including those who have shared trash service.
Attend this meeting to:
- Understand possible upcoming changes to your trash and recycling collection
- Ask questions about these potential new ordinances
- Provide input to make sure these new programs work for Summit County
