If you want to be like the folks on the hill."

> Single Stream Recycling Roll Cart Mitigation - Tim Davis The City of Moscow, in partnership with solid waste franchisee Latah Sanitation, Inc. (LSI) is in the process of implementing the new single stream curbside recycling program. During this process, recycling roll carts were ordered and received in early August but did not meet the color specified by the City. The color was too similar in color to the roll carts currently being used for solid waste collection, thus the City rejected the roll carts and requested LSI reorder the correct colored roll carts that the City had originally specified. LSI has already been required to pay for the initial roll cart order. The City’s rejection of these roll carts has resulted in a serious financial burden to LSI. For this reason, staff is proposing that the City participate in the cost mitigation in the amount of $123,750 to be paid in a lump sum payment following, new order verification by the City and order placement by LSI. LSI has agreed to exercise best efforts to sell or re-use the wrong-color roll carts and 70% of any cost recovery gained from such resale or value to LSI from such re-use will be paid to the City of Moscow up to the level of the City’s participation. Staff is also proposing that the current Solid Waste Franchise Agreement be extended from its current expiration date of September 30, 2023 to September 30, 2035
