[GreenYes] Re: egs. of franchising in unincorporated areas?
Brenda

re: #3, NJ had something, I think it was called 901, that required background checks of haulers before granting them a permit. I don't know if it's still in effect, I know it was challened quite some time ago (like 15 years ago!), and it was on the state level, not community.

Sorry about crosspostings.

Howdy all,

I'm looking for examples of communities that have done any of the
following three initiatives:

1.  Franchising in unincorporated areas.  Does anyone know of rural
and/or unincorporated areas where the county government controls how
waste haulers pick up materials and what they pick up?

2. Mandating waste generators recycle (vs. haulers providing service).
I'm familiar with programs in New Jersey and Rhode Island.

3.  Passing "bad boy ordinances," i.e., if a company or its subsidiaries
has ever been convicted of a felony, the community will not contract for
its services.

Thanks in advance for any leads!
