Algoma To Explore Automated Trash Collection


Members of the Algoma City Council did some trash talking Monday night.

Council members are trying to come up with a more cost effective method of garbage collection.

City Administrator Tom Reynolds says more and more communities are switching to automated trash and recycling pick-up and that's something Algoma will explore. He says they currently use a sticker system but it's not paying for itself.

Reynolds says Monday the Council voted to authorize Public Works Director Mark Lentz to issue requests for proposals for both automated collection and regular curbside pickup.

The deadline to submit RFPs is August 30. Regardless of what route they choose, the city would like to lock up their next deal for a while. Reynolds says they're looking at signing a 10-year contract.

Algoma's current waste and recycling contract expires at the end of the year.
