Residents with questions about the program should call 1-866-797-9018.
Waste Management is busy delivering new trash and recycling containers to Twinsburg residents as part of the city's new automated refuse pickup program. Waste Management is providing all residents with a 96-gallon trash container and a 64-gallon recycling bin that will be used for once-per-week pickup. These containers will be picked up using a semi-automated process that was tested in 500 Twinsburg homes in Ward 1 last year. The automated process involves the way the truck picks up the containers from the curb. Over the life of the contract, Twinsburg would be expected to pay Waste Management $5,448,196. The contract is set to end in April 2018. The annual cost* to the city is: *Note: The annual costs are only projections because there is…

The city agreed to a one-year extension with the trash hauler but will examine other options in 2012
Twinsburg City Council is approved 7-0 a one-year extension to the current trash pickup contract with Waste Management Inc. Tuesday night. In previous meetings council wanted to bid the contract for the future, but decided to extend the current agreement with Waste Management, Inc. one more year and get everything ready for bid next year. “That’s exactly why we’re asking for the extension, so that the specs can be drawn up and everyone knows what they’re going after,” Council President Gary Sorace said. Originally the city considered extending the contract for three years, but council wanted to test the waters and put the contract up for bid. Because the current contract ends in December, they will extend for another year at the same rate…

The cost of garbage service could be decided on the number of pickup days residents want
Twinsburg will go shopping for trash service for the first time since 2005. City Council unanimously rejected legislation Tuesday night (At-Large Councilman Bill Furey was absent) that would have extended the city’s contract with Waste Management, Inc. for another three years. Instead, the city will test the waters again for the best price. “I don’t understand why we wouldn’t go out to bid on this,” Ward 3 Councilman Ted Yates said. The three-year extension was passed over at the last meeting because council wanted to compare the numbers from a variety of other cities in the area. The current contract, ending in December, was a three-year extension of the original agreement made in 2005. The proposed extension would have extended the …

City Council wants to see more data before agreeing to a three-year extension with a 2 percent increase
The decision to extend the city’s current contract with Waste Management, Inc., will have to wait a few more weeks. At Tuesday night’s meeting, Twinsburg City Council postponed voting on the proposed contract because it wanted to have a closer look at the numbers. “I would just like to have two more weeks to check it out,” said Sam Scaffide, Ward 2 councilman. He said he wants to be sure they are getting a competitive rate before they agree to another extension. The current contract ending in December was a three-year extension of the original agreement made in 2005. The proposed extension would continue the contract with Waste Management until 2014. According to the proposed contract, there would be no rate increase in 2012, which …
