Duluth approves annual contract for solid waste management

The Duluth City Council voted recently to approve a new solid waste contract with Republic Services. The contract maintains residential bag prices at current pricing. City services at the Public Work Complex will be limited to 10 free hauls per month. Industrialized roll-off customers have an increase in haul rates and tonnage rates. Frontend load dumpster customers will see a slight increase in monthly rates.

The city’s contract with Republic Services will have annual cost of living allowance capped at 4 percent per year. The contract is for one year with annual renewal options for up to five years.

Duluth will collect a 5 percent franchise fee on all commercial services. No rebate will be collected on bag sales.
