Garbage a Messy problem for county by Rick Hull the daily inter Lake there is no easy answer to tip county s looming garbage disposal problems says re fuse District director Gary Stempin. A i can t walk up and say recycling is the answer and for $10 million we d be set for the next 30 years. It might be that All you d end up doing is throwing away $10 says Stempin. It will take a combination of approaches to keep the county Landfill from running out of space by the year 2002. And every solution has a Trade off and a Cost. He Points out a policy of repairing washing machines and recovering sofas would Cut Down on the 240 tons of trash arriving at the Landfill each Day. But it please local appliance and furniture dealers. Inot Only Are there no easy answers. Stempin does t even know All the questions yet. The Federal government was scheduled to unveil strict new Landfill rules in december but three months have passed and the regulations Are still in limbo. The rules Are sure to be expensive since Montana will have to live by policies drawn up for East coast problems. Wells will have to be drilled and regularly tested Green Box Sites will have operators checking loads for taboo items and there will be 30 years of monitoring expenses after the Landfill closes. The county Landfill opened in 1970 with an estimated lifespan of 21 years. By switching from bulldozers to Metal and rubber tired vehicles to compact trash More efficiently and piling garbage in layers instead of burying it in trenches operators have extended the landfills life for another 12 years.

The More the solutions to our problems will Cost a said Stempin. Seattle was forced to act when its landfills closed the City now freights its trash to Central Oregon at $72 a ton Spokane faced a similar crisis and had to come up with a $157-million garbage fired Power Plant As a solution. A if we do our Job. It s going to Cost us Money a he said a if we do our Job wrong it s going to Cost us a lot of Money. A the Media has indoctrinated the Public with the idea that recycling is the answer Stempin said but local recyclers confirm that the Market is glutted with newspaper and Glass a largely the result of compulsory recycling Laws in other states. And with no markets in Montana a Flathead industries aluminium goes to Colorado a there is the added Cost of shipping the Federal government and the Industry see four solutions to the problem recycling a called a source separation a is one but unless the markets can be developed tons of newspaper Are doomed to be simply buried some recyclers Are betting that governments will require a percentage of their paper purchases to be recycled paper.
