BH Seeks Garbage Hauler

Bids for garbage collection services are being sought by the city of Benton Harbor. The city this week put out a request for bids, or an RFP, looking for a trash hauler. That’s following last month’s problem with We-cycle Industrial Sanitation, the city’s current contractor. Trash was not picked up for several days last month when the city’s payment for that service was made to the wrong person. The situation was later resolved by the city commission, but the new RFP for solid waste collection, disposal, and yard waste processing for about 2,400 homes has been issued. The city will take bids through January 7, and then review them.
