COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)
The City of Columbia Solid Waste Utility is hosting a public meeting next week to discuss a proposed recycling dropoff center on Oakland Gravel Road, according to a Wednesday press release.
The meeting will be 5-7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 9, in Conference Room 1C at Columbia City Hall. Public comments can also be submitted online.
The proposed recycling drop-off center would be placed on City-owned property on Oakland Gravel Road, north of the intersection with Vandiver Drive, according to the release.
The site will include up to 10 receptacles for mixed fiber and mixed containers, the release states.
The announcement comes as the City announced in May that it was temporarily halting its recycling services, due to staffing shortages. The suspension was expected to end in June, but was indefinitely extended.
The suspension has led to overflows at some of Columbia's nine residential recycling dropoff spots.
