IF RECOLOGY IS FORCED TO COMPETE FOR SF GARBAGE, HOW MIGHT THAT AFFECT HUMBOLDT COUNTY?

“Why would I want to put this company at risk and go through that headache?” Mr. Sangiacomo asked. He added that his company “could be out of business” if forced to compete for the contract.
Isn’t that interesting? And straight from the horses mouth, too. If Recology loses the monopoly on San Francisco garbage and is forced to compete for the contract, it could put Recology out of business. If Humboldt County is forced to accept a big pile of trash in Desert Valley and Recology goes under after a few years, who do you think will be responsible for cleaning that garbage up? Recology? The State of Nevada? The taxpayers of Humboldt County?

There is a great discussion going on right now in San Francisco about competition vs. monopoly, and Recology is at the center of it. Click here to read this NY Times article.
