Houston accepts bid for trash pickup

By Chickasaw Journal

HOUSTON – Officials accepted a bid from Resourceful Environmental Services (RES) that will maintain twice-a-week residential garbage pickup and the same price to city customers.
RES was actually charging $11.49 per point of pickup and their new bid was $10.86 for twice-a-week service. The city will continue to charge residents $12 for garbage service.
Aldermen had looked at once a week pickup cost but decided to keep twice-a-week pickup to cut down on litter and illegal dumping.
RES bid $9.75 for once-a-week pickup. Waste Management bid $7.50 for once-a-week pickup and $10.95 for twice-a-week.
