Waste Management District Manager Commits to Plumas County Supervisors to Improve Services


Waste Management District Manager, based in Reno, and a Quincy native, commits to Plumas County Supervisors to improve services. The Feather River Disposal Waste Management ultimately received the controversial near 7.5 percent rate increase, stalled by the county supervisors due to lack of quality service during and post Dixie Fire. The district manager will be looking for a new general manager and hire more drivers with the incentive of a 5000 dollar sign on bonus. Until new hires are brought in, temporary corporate drivers will be used to remedy service gaps. Other methods proposed include bringing in technicians to service the trucks, addressing the recycling issue to include Quincy and Chester pick-ups and drop offs at the transfer station, and improved communication with use of text and emails.
