County Council Approves Trash Contracts

The St. Louis County Council on Tuesday authorized contracts with haulers to collect trash and recyclables in trash collection Districts 6 and 8, which include the unincorporated areas of Lemay, Mehlville and Oakville. The haulers will collect trash and recyclables once a week and bulky items twice a year.

The contracts will go to:

- Allied Waste Services, for District 6. Households will pay a monthly charge of $13.50 in the first year.

- IESI in District 8. The monthly charge starts at $13.09 in the first year.

Aspen Waste Systems was the low bidder for both districts, but withdrew its bid, citing a lawsuit filed against the county by other waste haulers seeking to derail the trash district program.

The county says the haulers will begin work on Oct. 1. Councilmen John Campisi, R-south St. Louis County, and Greg Quinn, R-Ballwin, voted against awarding the contracts.
