The city's waste reduction coordinator, Jane Hinshaw, is resigning, effective this week.
Hinshaw, who was hired in August, said she was quitting for personal reasons. As the recycling coordinator--which was a new position--she oversaw a study of the city's amount and types of trash. The report, issued last week, will be the basis for devising ways to reduce the amount of waste 25% by 1995 and 50% by 2000, as mandated by a recently enacted state law.
Hinshaw said she was proud of the report and the steady increase in recycling. Last month, 96 tons of newspaper, glass, plastic and other recyclable materials were left at the city's nine drop-off sites, up from about 55 tons when the program started in April, Hinshaw said.
