The City’s current agreement with Waste Management has expired, and requests for proposals were sent out in June of 2011 pursuant to the direction of the Common Council. The City has received multiple proposals, and staff is recommending the community and its elected leaders evaluate four different alternatives for refuse and recycling collection that include the following:
- Alternative #1: Remaining with the current service provider which is Waste Management
- Alternative #2: Select a new private sector service provider from those who submitted proposals
- Alternative #3: Select a public service provider who submitted a proposal (The City of Janesville)
- Alternative #4: Provide refuse and recycling services through the City of Milton’s Public Works Dept.
The community forum is being advertised as “Talking Trash,” and coordinated by the City’s community services manager. The event will be held at the Shaw Municipal Building on Tuesday, September 6, 2011 at 6 p.m. For those not able to attend, questions, comments, or concerns related to this service may be directed to Community Services Manager Inga Jacobson via phone at 608-868-6900 ext. 4 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
