BC- Choice Waste is currently the waste service provider for Fort Lauderdale…with service for recycling town wide …and is just about to be the solid/ bulk waste contractor for the entire city as well…….

The Town had a formula to be followed for the costs…based on the sizes…from a 96 gallon toter-8 cubic yards….to be added to the pick-ups per week…those totals were divided by 30 to come up with the averages…of the costs per mo….they include the franchise fees….

While they included the cost for compacted commercial dumpsters the rep. from Waste management informed me there are currently no such compactors in town to do this….

Choice also informed this writer they are willing to work with the Town and the residents for the use of  a smaller toter  ….not requiring only 96 gallon…and to allow duplex…multi-family customers to retain the ability of having less garbage receptacles …as is allowed  at the present time… rather than requiring 1 for each unit as was suggested at the pre-bid meeting….

BC- This writer appreciates the “guy” that do the pick-ups and the letter…. but would like a lower cost…as offered by the company ( Choice) that services our neighbors in Ft. Lauderdale…

This is to be addressed at the 3/24/09 Commission meeting……

more to come….
