Message Regarding Single Hauler
As was stated in our last newsletter, Charter Township of Kalamazoo is exploring the option of a single hauler for trash and yard waste. We asked for responses from our residents and the vast majority were positive. The main concerns that were expressed by those with reservations were that it remain competitive, that there continue to be choices in container size and services offered such as yard waste pick up and that costs would not go up. Residents would continue to work directly with the hauler regarding service and the payment of bills. These are all considerations that will be included in the request for proposals that will go out to the waste haulers servicing this area. If these criteria cannot be met the township will not go forward with the proposal.
By having a single hauler the company chosen can set up the most efficient route for their pickups, eliminating the need for three different trucks driving through the neighborhood, making frequent stops, on three different days. This will protect our investment in our roads and reduce noise and air pollution in our residential neighborhoods.
The township would like your continued input on this process. Please contact the township to let us know what you think and what you are currently paying for your waste hauling services.
You can call Supervisor Ronald Reid at 381-8080 or send email to email@example.com
