Ecology Center Likely to Keep Berkeley Recycling Contract

After concerted community pressure, it looks like Berkeley’s recycling contract will stay with the Ecology Center, a 42-year old city institution. “The turn out [at the March 8 council meeting] helped to turn the tide,” said Ecology Center Executive Director Martin Bourque, underscoring that the decision is yet to be made.

The city manager’s recommendations will be available Thursday; the city council will discuss them March 29. “The Ecology Center… is working with staff,” said City Manager Phil Kamlarz. “We’re re-negotiating with one-person trucks” for recycling.
