District Coordinator Lisa Beursken of the Erie County Solid Waste Management District sits down with The Erie Wire to talk about the Solid Waste Management Advisory Council (SWAC), curbside recycling, the role of local haulers and how the Erie County Landfill could potentially begin to pay off their debt amid a recycling community. Recycling has become a sensitive topic within Erie County, threatening  local haulers to be outbid by larger facilities and creating an uncomfortable future for a landfill that depends on the tonnage of incoming waste to pay its bills. Local efforts can be threatened or supported by decisions made by the statewide SWAC, which is currently in favor of encouraging a future where Ohio becomes a model state for all recycling communities.
