BELOW IS A LETTER EXPLAINING AN ADJUSTMENT TO OUR RECYCLING OPERATIONS
September 1, 2018
Dear Valued Customer,
Since the middle of 2015 the world has seen a major shift in the value of recycling material and for several months Buckingham has been struggling to process our recycling material. As we hope you have already heard from local and national news reports, China has decided to no longer accept material from the US unless it is 100% contaminate free, which is an impossibility.
We are continuing to do our best to find outlets for this material however it is becoming a very difficult situation as well.
Effective August 27, 2018, Buckingham will be shutting down our processing operation of recycling material at our location in Prior Lake and will ship out all recycling collected to a third party nearby.
Our cost unfortunately will increase due to this change, however we will not stop the collection of marketable material because it’s a service our customers desire.
What can you do?
Work to reduce contamination and only put clean material out at the curb for every other week recycling collection.
We are constantly working to improve our service, contain our operating costs, and develop solutions to reduce our environmental impact. However, the rising costs are not fully in our control. We will be adding a “Commodity Adjustment Fee” as a line item to the recycling portion of each bill effective September 1st, 2018. This "Commodity Adjustment Fee" will only be applied to the recycling portion of your bill and will be a fee of an additional 15%, which is based on the cost that we will be charged at the third party location that is taking the recycling material we are collecting.
Additionally, our recycle center will continue to be open for public drop off of odd items, recyclables and yard waste as it has been. Hours are Mon-Fri, 9am-3pm, open late until 7pm on Thursdays (April-Nov) and Saturdays 10am-2pm.
We thank you for your business and understanding in this manner and we will continue to strive to give you the best possible service in our industry.
