Solid Waste Public Meetings - you are invited

The Town’s current contract with Windsor Refuse and Recycling for Town-wide franchised waste hauling services expires on September 30, 2017. In addition, the Town’s franchise agreements with debris box haulers Industrial Carting, Pacific Sanitation and Windsor Refuse & Recycling expire December 31, 2017. The voters of the Town of Windsor in 1996 adopted a ballot measure requiring waste management contracts to undergo the public bidding process, with a 10-year maximum contract term. The Town’s current franchise agreements have met this maximum term.

In preparation for the bidding process for these franchised services, the Town of Windsor will be hosting two public meetings to discuss and receive community input on the Town’s waste management services, Assembly Bill 939 and other State recycling mandates, and residential and commercial solid waste program components and desirable service changes or enhancement.
The meetings will be held on the following dates and locations:

• Tuesday, July 19 at 6:00-8:00 p.m., Community Center, 901 Adele Avenue; and
• Wednesday, July 27 at 6:00-8:00 p.m., Town Council Chambers, 9291 Old Redwood Highway, Building 400.
Both meetings will cover the same information, and the Town welcomes public participation in these meetings.
