County Board ponders trimming trash haul
SYCAMORE – A zero-waste policy could be in the works for DeKalb County as a looming landfill expansion continues to be challenged.
Ken Andersen, R-Sycamore, suggested multiple waste policies be discussed at the committee level during Wednesday’s DeKalb County Board meeting. Among his ideas were a zero-waste policy that would work toward no trash being disposed in a landfill, a zero-waste task force that would be comprised of board members, municipal leaders and residents and higher fees for landfill and garbage truck licensing.
The suggestions likely would start with discussions at the planning and zoning committee level where it already gained support.
