City of Redmond enters into new solid waste contract with Waste Management
The Redmond City Council agreed to the final terms of a new solid waste contract with Waste Management at the Aug. 18 council meeting. The 10-year contract is set to begin Jan. 1, 2016.
"Our new contract with Waste Management is a testament to efficiency and our community's green character," said Mayor John Marchione. "It provides uninterrupted service, encourages recycling and responsibly manages solid waste disposal."
Some highlights in the contract include year-round weekly yard waste service for residents, and an increase in the volume of recycling offered at no additional charge for multi-family and commercial customers, up to 200 percent the volume of their garbage service.
“We have been providing recycling and garbage services to the City of Redmond for many years and are thrilled to be continuing our longstanding sustainability partnership,” said Mary Evans, area director, Public Sector Services for Waste Management. “Redmond is a 'clean and green' leader, prioritizing environmental stewardship. In this city, recyclables and compostables always have a second life.”
Customers will receive a letter from Waste Management in November detailing changes in rates and services.
