Contract Extended for Feasibility Study on Proposed Venango County Recycling Center

| September 11, 2019

FRANKLIN, Pa. (EYT) – At the Tuesday, September 10, Venango County Commissioners’ meeting, an agreement with the company looking at the feasibility of a recycling center was extended.

A contract with Nestor Resources, Inc., a company that is providing a feasibility study on the proposed Venango County Recycling Center was extended an additional nine months.

According to Venango County Regional Planning Executive Director Jason Ruggiero, the reason for the extension is because the County has yet to secure a location for the proposed Center, meaning a feasibility study on the site can’t be conducted as of yet.

Earlier in the summer, the County thought it has secured a location at the Cranberry Mall in the old Sears Automotive Center, but Cranberry Township refused to change its zoning regulations to allow for the Center to go in that location.

Ruggiero told exploreVenango that the County is still hoping to work with Cranberry Township to find a location within the township, but that time is running short on getting that accomplished.

“We would prefer it to be in Cranberry Township,” Ruggiero said. “But, we need to find a location (soon).”

In other recycling news, the Commissioners agreed to add two additional recycling bins at Two Mile Run County Park.

Ruggiero said the bins at the park are overflowing, so more were needed.

Advanced Disposal will provide the bins at a cost of $265.00 per month for three years.
