Reed City Residential Waste Customer Award
of Bid to American Waste
After conducting a sealed bid process the City Council has awarded the low bid to American Waste for a 3 year contract to start February 1st, 2020 to continue our weekly solid waste pick up and monthly household items pick up.
The current contract was to expire December 31st 2019 but Republic Waste offered to extend it for one more month to January 31st 2020 to help with the transition.
The City composed a list of all 830 residential customers and provided it to American Waste so they could build their pick up route. The City understands each residential customer has received a letter from American Waste explaining pick up guidelines and asking each customer to call and let them know what type of service they desire- bags or totes.
American waste has chosen to use Red bags so their drivers know which bags to pick up in the future. These bags will be available at City Hall, Shakers Party Store and Marathon gas station by February 1st.
In accordance with the bid specifications, the new contactor must honor and pick up the yellow bags for 60 days commencing February 1st. Those customers that have an unopened roll of yellow bags can bring them to City Hall after February 1st for a refund if they will not use them up in the next 60 days.
The City and American Waste are trying to make this transition with as few conflicts as possible but we both know it can happen. If you have any questions about the service please contact American Waste at 231-943-8088 and if you still have questions or concerns please call City Hall and we will address them.
