Fort Worth council: Trash, recycling deals renewed

Written by Star-Telegram
Published: January 29, 2013

Waste Management, the city's residential trash and recycling collector, won renewal of its contracts in a unanimous City Council vote Tuesday.

The council renewed the trash contract for 10 years. It renewed the recycling contract for five years to give Fort Worth time to update its solid waste master plan. The city aims to build a recycling facility in Fort Worth instead of having Waste Management haul the material to its Arlington center.

Waste Management pared its rate, and the city intends to put the savings toward closing the gap between expenses and revenue in the solid waste fund.

The company also agreed to provide 125 BigBelly solar trash compactors to the city, extend the Recyclebank rewards program for one year at a reduced rate, convert its local fleet from diesel to compressed natural gas and procure a new maintenance facility in Fort Worth.
