Town recycling costs could rise

Ozaukee Press Staff

Supr. Tom Bichler on Monday night warned the Belgium Town Board that recycling costs could be on the rise.

“I talked to Advanced (Disposal) and there might be an additional charge coming up with the tariffs on our cardboard,” he said.

While 75% of America’s cardboard gets shipped to China, the tariffs halted that.

“Right now, there’s no place to go with it,” Bichler said.

“I’m not sure what the price increase is going to be. I’ll know more next month.”
