County Overhaul of Trash Service Could Boost Costs
By Jennifer McLain - San Gabriel Valley Tribune Staff Writer
>>For the county, this allows it to deliver more uniformed services to its residents, plus reduce the amount of haulers that currently drive through the streets, said Ken Pellman, public information officer for the department of public works.
"The county is currently reviewing the proposals. The proposals are evaluated on the basis on seven criteria including price. The waste hauler who scores the highest will be awarded the contract subject to the Board of Supervisors approval," Pellman said.
"Cost of trash services may or may not go up," Pellman said. "The franchise agreement has provisions that controls rate increases."
A request for proposal is also being developed for other communities such as Hacienda Heights.
"We will be doing this for the different coverage areas we serve in the county," Pellman said.<<
