City to enter negotiations with new trash/recycling provider

Back To News

The Colleyville City Council passed a resolution at its April 4 meeting directing City staff to enter contract negotiations with a new trash/recycling provider, Community Waste Disposal, for residential and commercial service.

The City’s current contract with Waste Connections, formerly Progressive Waste Solutions, concludes on Oct. 31, 2017. The new service would begin Nov. 1, 2017.

City Council decided to open the next contract to bids from other providers as well as Waste Connections. City Council then received presentations with the companies that provided the two lowest bids, Waste Connections and CWD. While no contract has been finalized, CWD provided the lowest pricing for the same level of basic service, which is actually a price decrease from the current contract. The CWD proposal also included several optional service enhancements, including curbside collection of household hazardous waste and electronics for recycling, which the City Council directed staff to explore as part of contract negotiations.

A formal contract will be brought forward for City Council consideration at a future City Council meeting. City staff will continue to communicate throughout the process including contract details following adoption and information on the transition period.
