With a two-year contract drawing to a close in less than two months, county officials are reviewing bids from companies for ongoing recycling collections.
"The county is going to be ending a 2-year contract with ECSR [Environmental Coordination Services & Recycling]," said Bekki Titchner, recycling/solid waste coordinator for Elk County. "They've been providing services for our yearly household hazardous waste collection as well as ongoing collections for oil-based paints, pesticides, fluorescent lamps and batteries. The contract expires in April and we're rebidding for another two years.
