as they become available.
Losing landfill jobs sounds bad, but a recycling center will replace every job lost with five new jobs, Tierney said.
For example, one strategy is working with trucking companies to send recyclables to Denver on empty trucks that had delivered goods to Morgan County. Those trucks would have run empty otherwise, and that way Mirror Image would only have to pay for a truck one way, he said.
About 75 percent of the respondents indicated they thought a recycling program was an excellent idea, with another 18 percent indicating it was a good idea. About 73 percent thought curbside recycling was the way to go, with another 18 percent saying it might be the way.
The idea is to have a processing center in Fort Morgan. Households would separate out recycled materials into one bin including all kinds of materials, without having to separate things like glass, paper or metal which would be picked up at the curb just like trash. Trash trucks would bring the recyclables to the center, Tierney said.
Representatives of the Fort Morgan, Brush and Wiggins city and town councils, as well as representatives of Morgan County government chat before a city county meeting Thursday night.
Comments on the forms were mostly positive about the idea of recycling, but there was at least one that said it was a waste of time and money.
However, he faced some tough questions by Fort Morgan officials.
This kind of single stream system in which households do not have to do much separation is intended to make it easier for those who want to recycle, he said. Making it easy is important, because having people participate is how his company would make a profit.
Local officials questioned a representative of Mirror Image Ventures Thursday night about details of a plan to start a recycling center in Fort Morgan.
Costs rise for landfill operations when they have high fixed costs they cannot reduce if there is less waste, Tierney said. When they can reduce costs enough, perhaps by laying off employees, fewer fees are not a problem.
One of the difficulties in selling recycled materials is having enough for the buyer, he explained. Often, these manufacturers cannot take the time to deal with single loads of materials. They need a constant supply.
be shifted around under this plan. Since the city pays waster fees when it drops off trash at the county landfill, the landfill would earn fewer fees if recyclable material went elsewhere. That might mean that the landfill would have to raise prices to make its work possible and that higher price would be paid by households.
Instead of having recycled material going from Under Armour White And Black Shoes place to place and handled many times, the company would collect and separate materials in Fort Morgan and other centers around the state for transportation directly to Denver, Tierney said.
He said that the response showed those who responded wanted to see something happen, although not necessarily this particular project. The project is probably possible, but it is uncertain whether it would really save money.
Forty one percent of respondents indicated they would like recycling available every two weeks, 17 percent wanted it weekly, 27 percent said every four weeks was enough and 15 percent had other ideas.

That not only would reduce costs, but require less fuel and other transportation costs, incidentally making it more environmentally friendly, he said.
Having a system of centers around the state will allow Mirror Image to collect enough to send these materials directly to manufacturers, which increases profits.

Over the years, paper and aluminum mills have geared up to handle recycled materials, and that offers potential buyers, Tierney said. However, some recyclable materials do not have much of a market. For example, the program might not be able to handle glass at first, since it does not have as good a market.
Although it was unscientific, a survey was sent out to get the pulse of the community, said Brush City Administrator Monty Torres. About 100 people returned surveys.
This is part of a strategy of doing things differently than in the past, Tierney said.

Recycling can reduce trash loads by 20 to 40 percent, he said.
People putting their recyclable materials out would not pay for the service, since the profit would come from the materials, Tierney said.
Recyclable waste would not have to be put into the landfill, thus saving the need to dig more space to put it in, Tierney noted, adding that landfill operations are expensive and getting more and more expensive.
About 77 percent of respondents said they had the space to store materials until it is time to recycle, with another 13 percent saying they were not sure.
Fort Morgan City Councilman Jim Powers wondered if there was a real market for recycled materials. He and others had researched the concept in earlier years, but even good operations often had problems finding people who wanted to buy recycled materials.
Pat Tierney, president and CEO of the company, talked about how the program might work during a meeting of Morgan County government and local city and town officials. He told them how it might save their jurisdictions some money.
An analysis of the Morgan County Landfill shows that it could reduce costs, at least partly, he said.
