WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Wilmington officials are considering agreements with the Delaware Solid Waste Authority that could save the city almost $2 million.

A proposed ordinance authorizes the Public Works and Parks and Recreation departments to enter into separate five-year agreements for disposing of Wilmington’s trash and recyclables.

Under the first year of the public works agreement, the DSWA would accept the city’s trash and recyclables at the Cherry Island Landfill for $69 per ton, instead of the regular $85 per ton tipping or dumping fee. In each subsequent year, the cost would increase by a dollar per ton.

Under the Parks and Recreation agreement, the DSWA would accept the city’s trash for $65 per ton the first year, with the cost increasing a dollar per ton in each of the next four years.
