Carter County Mayor Leon Humphrey has announced a joint meeting between members of the Carter County Commission and the Elizabethton City Council to discuss the possibility of developing a single-stream recycling program.
Humphrey said he is hopeful the meeting will allow local officials to consider the idea of implementing a recycling program that would include residents within Elizabethton and the remainder of Carter County. He noted that the session will look at the feasibility of creating the single-stream recycling program.
In addition to the local officials, Solid Waste Director for Marshall County, Morgan Thomas, will be speaking at the event.
The session between city and county officials will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 12 at 10 a.m. at the Truman Clark Annex in Elizabethton.
