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.”

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.”
