I attend meetings of the Public Services and Environmental Committee of the COG to learn about the good work they are doing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions locally. One of the responsibilities of this committee is overseeing garbage collection and recycling. Recently this committee has been discussing a request from Advanced Disposal and the Centre County Recycling and Refuse Authority to begin collecting materials at 6:00 a.m. instead of 7:00 a.m. throughout the summer months. That way their employees could be finished with their routes before the heat of the day became excessive.
