While key infrastructure is in place, Hans Medlarz, director of the Department of Public Works, clarified that utilities are driven by economic development and not by housing. It's because present utility demands are designed to meet the needs of the local industry that it can also meet the needs of the housing market, he said.

The project - which totals approximately $14 million - aims to meet the county's goals of making the facility more environmentally friendly and safer for workers, said Department of Public Works Director Hans Medlarz.

Kent County is not the first agency to use such green technology, as Atlantic City, N.J., uses wind turbines and solar panels to power their wastewater treatment facility.
"They're our role model," Medlarz said.
...
If the solar power is effective at drying the material to a dust-like consistency, Medlarz said the substance could be used to make cement at a kiln in Pennsylvania.
"You would never look to do this using fossil fuels," Medlarz said, noting the energy output and produced emissions would be greater than the benefits received from using the substance as an alternative material.
...
Medlarz said most of the funds for the improvements come from a state program that has allowed the county to borrow the money for the upgrades at a low-interest rate.

Hans Medlarz, director of the Department of Public Works, said the need for a new contract was the main reason for the change.

"Every three years we bid out competitively and publicly for our garbage collection services provider, and this year was the one we needed to bid out," Medlarz said."Inland Services is now going to be our provider."
The cut in pickups per week was not a financial move, but a personnel decision the county thought needed to be made, he said.
"We went to once a week pickups because we were having significant labor problems in twice a week pickups," Medlarz said."There were a lot of missed pickups."
To fix the labor issue, he said, the garbage collection system would be automated, where a truck will have a driver and a mechanical arm that lifts the garbage can and dumps the trash.
The new service gives customers the option to start thinking green in a simple way with the curbside recycling option.
Every customer will be given a 65-gallon recycling container in addition to the 95-gallon garbage container, and will have the option to have all recyclable materials picked up every other week.
The simplest part of the recycling program, Medlarz said, is that residents do not have to sort their materials.All recyclables go into the 65-gallon container and are later sorted at a recycling center.
"If you choose not to recycle you don't have to," he said."But it actually has more options, more things that are included than you find in recycling igloos.We can take cardboard boxes like food containers, beer cases, etc."
Medlarz said that the Texas-based Inland Services company estimated a good number of people would take advantage of the recycling program, but he hopes that actual numbers exceed expectations.
"Inland assumed that 50% of our customers would use it," he said."But it's so easy we would like to see a high percentage of our customers take advantage of it."
With the decrease in pickups per week and increase in cost per year, some might think customers would be a bit upset with the change.However, Medlarz said easing the concerns of the customers has not been an issue.
He said, in fact, that he encourages customers to question the service so they can find out just how good it is.
"Complaints were miniscule," Medlarz said.
...
Medlarz said the new collection system is planning to go live as of Jan. 2.

Over the last three years, the wastewater treatment plant has received more than $28 million in funding from state, county and federal sources for research projects and upgrades that will allow the facility to reduce energy expenditures by 15 and reduce air emissions related to stand-by power generation by about 80 percent, according to Hans Medlarz, director of Kent County Public Works Department, which oversees the only wastewater treatment plant in Kent County.

...
The nearly 25-year-old blowers, which Medlarz described as "vintage," will be replaced with equipment that has been on the market for about five or six years, he said, and will eliminate vibration and friction issues that increase energy consumption. "The $5 million from the federal government is the last piece of the puzzle," he said July 2, when Delaware's U.S. senators joined county and federal officials in announcing the funding.
