SNELLVILLE – The city awarded a two-year contract for commercial and residential sanitation and recycling services to Advanced Disposal Monday.
Waste Pro had been the previous hauler.
The city received four bids for a new two-year contract to begin on July 1. The companies submitting bids were Advanced Disposal, Republic Services, Waste Pro and Waste Management.
Advanced Disposal was the lowest responsive bidder.
Going with Advanced Disposal will result in a savings of a minimum of $100,000 per year versus using the other companies, city officials said.
During the last pick up in June, Waste Pro will pick up carts and recycling bins. Advanced will have someone place the new carts and bins the last couple of weeks in June but they aren’t to be used until July.
All residents will be delivered one (1) 65-gallon garbage cart and one (1) 18-gallon recycling bin.
For any resident that would like a larger 65-gallon recycling cart rather than the 18 gallon bin call Public Works at 770-985-3527.
