County: PAYT could help reduce waste, encourage more recycling

ESB will mull pay as you throw

By Arin McKenna

The Environmental Sustainability Board (ESB) hosts a forum on whether the county should consider a “pay as you throw” (PAYT) option for trash pick up this evening.  

“This is an information gathering session,” said Brian Bosshardt, assistant to the county administrator. “We’ll explain the generalities of what it means and try to determine if the public wants us to pursue this.”

The Los Alamos County Council has identified environmental sustainability as one of its key strategic goals. Reducing waste is one step toward achieving that goal. ESB is looking to raise awareness and get residents thinking about how they can decrease their own refuse, whether or not this system is implemented.
