Republic Services Chosen as Single Trash Hauler Service for Kalamazoo Township
Beginning on April 1, 2016 all residential trash pick up in Kalamazoo Township will be handled by Republic Services. Residents will receive mailings from Republic asking them to select their cart size. Any residents using other trash services will have their carts picked up and be refunded money that was paid in advance for services beyond April 1, 2016 in compliance with the ordinance that was passed in November 2015. Republic will be offering choices of three cart sizes, and the option for yard waste pick up. The vast majority of residents will be receiving substantial cost savings. You will be receiving more detailed information in the mail and on this web site.
The Kalamazoo Township Board thought long and hard about the decision to choose a single hauler system. The primary reason for going to a single hauler is to reduce the truck traffic on our local roads. There are other benefits which include safety, noise reduction, less pollution and more savings for you the consumer. All of the input both for and against going to a single hauler was appreciated and respected.
The board also carefully studied the options for a service provider. Pre bid and post bid meetings were held with the potential providers and bid proposals were fully reviewed. All of the potential providers turned in solid proposals although one was at higher cost. The Board awarded the bid to Republic Services. Because of their facility in Kalamazoo, lower quarterly prices, and offering of three cart sizes their service was deemed to be in the best interest of the Township.
