By Linda Steglich daily news staff the City of Arlington paper recycling program will continue its test runs until a Council decision is made on which route to take with the paper program. A work session is scheduled at 4 . Tuesday on the paper separation and collection program review and the plastic garbage bag program review. According to statistics from the paper separation and recycling Pilot program after the fifth week of the program the participation averaged 30 percent or about 3,150 accounts within the test area. The City had anticipated a greater percentage of participation because fort Worth a average participation reached 40 per cent. The City study states that it took above five weeks for the citizens in the test area to develop the practice of separating paper and placing it at the curb on a specified Day other than the two Days Normal refuse was picked up. About 59,915 pounds of paper were generated per week after the fifth week. Sharp variations from the average were due to rain actual or anticipated. The Cost of the program the first four weeks was $3,250 while income was $2,570. A net loss of $680 was experienced. During this period a four Man collection Crew was used with the fourth Man helping the Driver establish his routes and count the number of participants. The report states that at the beginning of the second month the collection Crew was reduced to three men and a slight profit of $120 was realized. Despite heavy Rains during the tenth week a profit was made on the recycling program. The City was paid $28 per ton of paper delivered to Johns Manville in fort Worth. City officials determined if the City had been paid $29.20 per ton the program would have paid for itself during the 12 week period. Another Point made by the City staff was that if the first months statistics were discarded and the statistics from the second As and third months Are sued to be representative a reduction in paper Price of Only $1.15 per ton would put the program in the red. It was also noted that in such a paper separation and recycling program the socioeconomic conditions play a Large part. Citizens in the Western part of the test area generated the highest rate of refuse study records show. Participation rates differed by As much As 19 per cent from one Side of the City to the other. The test area included residents in the area bounded by Abram Spur 303, new York Avenue and the West City limits. It was indicated in the staff report on the project that if and when the citizens in the test area began separating All qualified paper products the weekly average could increase slightly. Based on nationally determined statistics it is believed each household could Recycle about 25-30 pounds of paper products per week. In the test period the participants saved 5,600 Trees or kept five tons Dure in Arlington allocating funds for tentative Long Range building plans based on estimates and projections. A historically in Arlington Bond elections have been done this Way a Wood said. A the growth Here is so rapid that otherwise we would constantly be voting on Bond issues. A the Public would be voting every to or la months a Wood said a and they done to want that. They select the people on the Board of education school Board to handle the Money for the seven Board members have staggered three year terms. The $30 million program the details of which Are not binding in any Way includes the construction of eight elementary schools $8 million two Junior highs $7.5 million one High school $6.5 million furniture and equipment for both old and new schools $2.5 Millionth renovation and additions to school buildings $2.3 million development and equipment expenses at Bowie High $1.2 million and the Purchase of land for future school Sites $2 million. Both Wood and school superintendent Martin have said that they can make no estimate beyond a years time on whether the $30 million Bond program would cause school taxes to Rise. A Rise is expected in the Overall school tax because of inflation and the Rise in operating and salary costs. A i want to say the tax would be raised a said Wood. A but the tax could be raised because of a raise in teachers school taxes Are broken Down into two areas Bond payment and operating and maintenance costs. Citizens Are taxed $1.72 per $100, figured on 60 per cent of their property a Market rate. Of that $1.72, $1.17 goes for operating and maintenance expenses and the other $.55 goes for the payment of Bonds. Two school Board members said they favored the Long term style of allocating Money for school use. Dan Dipert said that the Long term funding a keeps us from going Back to the voters every year to make out Dipert said that voting on funds for Only those programs needed in the near future a is not efficient.
