Did the city consider alternatives to unlimited trash pickup?

Yes. We asked those submitting proposals to include pricing for unlimited curbside trash pickup, which the city has now, as well as recommendations for service changes that could reduce costs, improve operation efficiency, and be more environmentally friendly. The city would work with the City Commission and the community on such changes, and we believe a change to our ordinance would be helpful. We did not have time to move that along before the current contract expires, but have plans to do so during 2021.

At the time of the new contract, we will continue to have unlimited curbside trash pickup.
