Recycling facility study can wait a while longer

A $25,000 study to assess whether Mono County and the Town of Mammoth Lakes need another, bigger re- cycling facility is a “last resort,” pending more discussion and cooperation between the two governments, the county supervisors agreed Tuesday.

Both are struggling to meet new state requirements that force municipalities to recycle more of their garbage. Solving “the garbage question” is a high priority for both governments, given high costs and low revenues due to a huge decline in construction revenues.
