What is the change, and when is it happening?

The city’s current residential curbside waste contract with Waste Management expires at the end of March 2021, so in 2020 we worked through the process of seeking proposals for that service. Waste Management and Republic Services submitted proposals, and Republic was the lowest responsive, responsible bid. Staff recommended Republic to the City Commission, and the commission approved the new contract at their Dec. 15, 2020 regular meeting.

Service with Republic begins in the city on April 1, 2021.
