Republic Services awarded Ada residential trash bid; Waste Management out after 12 years in Ada

By Amy Eddings

After 12 years of service, Waste Management will no longer be collecting Ada’s residential trash. 

The Village Council voted to accept Republic Services as the community’s new waste hauler, because its sealed bid was lower than Waste Management’s.  The contract is for three years, beginning Dec. 1, with an option to renew for another three years.

The savings?  Thirty-seven cents per customer per year.  Republic’s proposed monthly rate and fuel charge was $16.48.  Waste Management’s was $16.84.  Allen County Refuse, another bidder, priced itself out of the running at $17.34.
