Starting July 1, each facility will close one day a week, which according to Oswego County Solid Waste Director Frank Visser will save the county nearly $190,000 a year. Disposal fees are also increasing, which could raise $500,000 in revenue if waste levels don’t change.</p> Mon, 02 Jun 2014 14:04:08 +0000 Gino Geruntino 56697 at http://wrvo.org Oswego County considers closing four transfer stations Madison County recycling agriculture plastics http://wrvo.org/post/madison-county-recycling-agriculture-plastics <p>Madison County hopes to become a hub for the recycling of agricultural plastics.&nbsp; It's a waste that's created on farms that's been a problem for years.
