Why is the City eliminating the garbage sticker program?

The City’s contract with Waste Management expired on April 30, 2021. In December 2020, the City issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) on residential waste and recycling service to commence on May 1, 2021. The RFP requested that each bidder submit an option to continue the sticker-based program the City currently uses as well as a cart-based service option. The City received responses from four companies: Flood Brothers, Groot,  Lakeshore Recycling Systems, and Waste Management. However, none of the companies proposed a strictly pay-as-you-throw sticker program. Three of the four companies offered a sticker program with a flat monthly fee on top of the sticker pricing. Therefore, a cart-based service through Groot was selected as the most cost-effective option over the course of the five year contract.
