Walker to Pitch Recycling to LPPJ

Ruston Mayor Ronny Walker will be at Tuesday’s 6:30 PM meeting of the Lincoln Parish Police Jury (LPPJ) Solid Waste & Recycling Committee to propose a recycling program, according to that meeting’s agenda.

Currently, the parish collects a 1/2 cent sales tax for operation of the parish’s waste collection system. For 2016, the tax was budgeted to take just under $6 million from the taxpayers, according to budget documents.

Two other committees will meet, the Public Works Committee at 5:30 PM, and the Personnel/Benefits Committee at 6:00 PM.

The full Jury will meet at 7:00 PM.

    I wonder how much this’ll set us back?

    The science tells us that the cost will be high while the actual benefit is nothing more than mental do-gooder theater.

    Another secular religion, to assuage the guilt of “having too much” created by liberal Marxists.

    Basically cardboard and steel can be sold, the remainder piles up until you have to bury it.

    There is an amazing level of demand for foolish, unfeasible ideas in the West.

    Unless there’s a way the City can make money on it I’m very sceptical. If it’s economically viable- that is to say, a net positive on our Budget all inclusive of cost, them okay. Whatever. Personally I think it’s silly and of dubious benefit to anyone anywhere, but money is money.
    But, if this costs the budget a nickel, no sir. Ruston has much to do to make us attractive to business and industry. We don’t have money to through away to earn the housewife vote for our new mayor.
