Whitefish mulls mandatory curbside recycling

The city of Whitefish plans to get community input as it looks to determine whether it should create a mandatory curbside recycling program, and thus likely do away with its central recycling site.

Public Works Director Craig Workman said there are a number of factors when considering a central site or curbside recycling, but noted the benefits of a curbside recycling program could be worth additional costs and time it would take to establish such a program.

“Creating a mandatory single-stream curbside recycling program would be a new endeavor for the city of Whitefish, and it is going to take considerable planning in order to ensure its success, but I do think it’s worth the extra time and effort to establish the program,” he said. “The implementation of residential curbside recycling is one of the key strategies recommended in the Climate Action Plan.”

Currently, the city has a centralized recycling site at the corner of Columbia Avenue and Railway Street near the train depot. That property has been set aside for affordable housing, thus the city has been looking at creating a new centralized recycling site on city property on Monegan Road.
