Festus Extends Trash-Hauling Contract; Price Comparison Time Begins

The Festus, MO City Council on Wednesday extended the three-year contract for trash hauler IESI for an additional year.Trash will continue to be picked up once per week, recycling once per week and yard waste once per month. The fee will increase to $13.38 per month from $12.96.

Virtually 100% of St. Louis County residents, at least in the unincorporated areas, will be comparing trash costs in the coming months. Subdivision Trustees will be scrambling to consider whether their subdivision should opt-out of the county's program. What makes it more difficult is the cost of the county's program will not be known until early next summer.

We are starting to receive copies of trash proposals and will be putting together a comparison for easy review. If you, as an individual or as a subdivision have received a proposal, please share it with us. E-mail or mail to:
