Recycling franchise warning told


Steve Gillman speaks out against a Town-wide recycling franchise agreement during Farragut Board of Mayor and Aldermen meeting May 26.- Heather Mays/farragutpress
A pair of former Farragut residents told a three-person Board of Mayor and Aldermen a decision to enter into a Town-wide franchise for recycling services would be a mistake, Thursday, May 26.

Kim Turner, who owns Tennessee Trash Service, and her brother, Steve Gillman, said they’d read about a recent report from the Town’s recycling committee in the paper.

The report recommended the Board consider a franchise agreement for curbside single-stream recycling with a commercial vendor as a way to control costs for customers and increase the number of Farragut residents who recycle.

Gillman called that “a race to the bottom.”
