Front Royal’s Continued Recycling Will Cost Residents

11 July 2019 Front Royal/Warren County News

A Monday (7/8/2019) decision by Front Royal’s Town Council to continue the town’s recycling program will mean increased costs for residents.

Council was faced with the decision after a presentation last week by  Public Works Director Robert Boyer, who explained that a decreased demand for recyclables has caused their Winchester-based recycling service provider, Southern Scrap, to stop accepting cardboard and slow its rate of service. After Monday’s vote, Front Royal will now take its recycling to Manassas-based Republic Services, costing the town an extra $43,000 annually. These costs will be offset the first year by reallocating money intended for a recycling truck; after that, citizens would have to pay an additional 85 cents a month in collection costs.
