CRESTVIEW — After receiving city officials’ praise for Crestview's current trash contractor, the City Council unanimously approved renewing Waste Pro's contract for another five years.

Republic Services' Municipal Services manager Rory Cassedy, representing subsidiary Allied Waste Services, and Ralph Mills, Waste Pro’s regional vice president, addressed the council prior to the vote.

Cassedy stressed his company's bid would save small businesses $33.92 per month in garbage fees, or $407.04 a year, over current rates, or $287.04 annually contrasted with Waste Pro's bid.

Mills emphasized his company's much-lauded customer service and "flat management" structure.

Waste Pro's bid reduces residential and commercial rates, he said, yet provides customers four to five services per week, including twice-weekly trash pick-up, and recycling, yard waste and junk pick-ups.

Since assuming the city's garbage contract in 2007, Waste Pro has provided 10.2 million services, Mills said.
