Why are we not having curbside Organics Recycling in 2020?

Please see below the Cost to Benefit Analysis on the 2018  proposed regional organics program that would provide curbside collection of organics (yard, garden and food waste) to 16,000 households in Benner, College, Ferguson, Harris and Patton Townships. The proposal was modeled after the State College Borough Organics Program. All residents in the COG service area would have paid a base collection rate that would include organics curbside recycling.

Although adding organics collection to the refuse/recycling contract is not an economic or environmentally responsible way to handle organics at the current time, the participating townships of Benner, College, Harris, Ferguson, and Patton plan to continue to explore options to improve the regional refuse and recycling program and ways to enhance the sustainability of our community.
