The City of Twin Oaks will host the next Membership meeting on Thursday September 27 at their new Town Hall located at 1381 Big Bend Road, Twin Oaks, MO 63021; ( MAP ). The City Hall is located on the northeast corner of Highway 141 and Bib Bend, in the Schnuck’s Shopping Center.
The Village of Twin Oaks was incorporated in 1939. In November 2016 the residents supported a ballot initiative to become a fourth-class city. This will be the first time Twin Oaks has hosted a league meeting. It was made possible because the city dedicated its first city owned Town Hall this past March; a 5,500 square foot, $1.7 million facility. Refreshments will be served at 6:30 and the meeting will begin at 7:15
Program: In July of 2017 China announced it would stop importing most recycled plastic and paper from the United States and in August Resource Management here in St. Louis to announced it would stop processing residential single-stream recycled materials after October 31, 2018. These actions are forcing municipalities to evaluate the future of their recycle programs.
Brent Batliner, GM of Republic Services Recycle Facility, and Stephen Herring, Manager of Recycling, will discuss the future of recycling in our region. They will talk about what municipalities can do in the short-term and long-term to sustain their recycling programs.
