Since 1996, CARTM has brought over a million dollars in grants to our area and produced bragging rights for Tillamook County solid waste staff. Former Commissioner Labhart called it a treasure. Commissioner Josi said it’s an icon. On Friday, December 14, Commissioners Yamamoto and Baertlein voted it out of business effective December 31. That’s a lot to lose on two weeks’ notice, especially with no plan for replacing CARTM’s services at the Manzanita transfer station.
