Solid Waste Management Authority Board approves 12-year extension

Rate increase to start in August 

The Del Norte Solid Waste Management Authority Board has approved a 12-year extension in its disposal agreement with Dry Creek Landfill in Eagle Point, Oregon, according to a press release received Monday from the authority.

The extension, approved May 17, was negotiated by an authority ad hoc committee of Commissioners Blake Inscore and Martha McClure. The extension agreement will extend through Mar. 3, 2038.

The contract amendment extends both the transfer station operations agreement and the disposal agreement with Dry Creek Landfill, so they will both continue through March 3, 2040.

Based on changes to the consumer price index, rates at the Del Norte County Transfer Station are adjusted annually.  Starting in August, disposal costs for mixed wastes at the Del Norte County Transfer Station will increase from $142.15 per ton with a minimum charge of $5.10 to $144.04 per ton with a minimum charge of $7.20.  

In addition, Hambro/WSG will begin recycling clothing and shoes. This service has not previously been available in Del Norte.  Customers who properly separate their textiles for recycling will be charged $75.15 per ton for textiles.  

Ward said, “Even after this contract extension and the addition of textile recycling, authority facilities will still have the lowest rates in Humboldt, Curry, or Del Norte Counties.”

Julindra seeks contract changes

Owner: Price drops for cartons, bags and styrofoam hurting business owner 

Julindra Recycling has lost $25,000 since October 2015, and if they don’t make changes in their contract with Recology Del Norte, they will go out of business, according to owner Julie Badorek.

Badorek took over operation of the company after her father, Jordan Kekry, died last year. She has “requested … Recology be allowed to stop recycling styrofoam blocks, packing peanuts, mixed bags, shrink wrap, milk and juice cartons, number 4 and number 5 plastic containers, hard rigid plastic and miscellaneous electronics,” according to a press release from Del Norte Solid Waste Management Authority.

State cuts unrelated to Last Chance

Cuts and delays in the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) will not impact Del Norte County’s Last Chance Grade bypass, according to Tamera Leighton, executive director of Del Norte Local Transportation Commission. 

“STIP funds are not an appropriate fund source for the Last Chance Grade bypass,” Leighton said Friday. “The Last Chance Grade bypass is about a $1 billion project; an amount far greater than STIP. No matter what we do, U.S. Highway 101 needs to be federally funded. There is never enough money in STIP funds for the bypass project.”

After a years of disputed fishing rights on the lower Klamath River, the Yurok Tribe has filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California seeking to halt what they say is illegal gillnet fishing by members of the Resighini Tribe in the Lower Klamath River.

In the release, the Yurok Tribe said, “they alone maintain federally protected tribal fishing rights in the Lower Klamath River, and that in 1988, Congress enacted the Hoopa-Yurok Settlement Act (HYSA), which partitioned the then existing reservation into two separate reservations for the Hoopa Valley Tribe and the Yurok Tribe.”
