County Holds Hearing on Solid Waste Facilities

The Mason County Commission took public comment Tuesday night on whether the County should consider amending the land use zoning to expand where solid waste and/or recycling facilities could be located. This hearing was prompted after Wilson Recycling closed because the company was unable to expand its operations and start collecting garbage. Here is the whole hearing which runs just short of an hour.

As noted several times during the hearing, the County did not shut down Wilson Recycling. The Company decided to close after the County told them to stop accepting garbage. Wilson Recycling could have continued operating as a recycling center. The facility is currently for sale for $800,000.
