Why did the City choose a contractor that did not allow unlimited trash collection?

The City of Eureka contacted Waste Connections about renewing our contract in 2023.  They informed us that Eureka was operating under a very old model of unlimited trash collection and any contract moving forward would not include this.

The Board of Aldermen made the decision to go out for bid for trash collection.  No other company allowed for unlimited trash pick up.

Based on several facotrs, Meridian Waste was chosen as the City's new trash hauler.
