Union Bridge awards 3-year trash-hauling pact

March 25, 1998

Woods Waste Removal Inc. has won a three-year contract to collect trash in Union Bridge, effective July 1.

The Town Council awarded the contract to the Westminster-based Woods, the lower of two bidders, at its meeting Monday night.

The family-owned refuse hauling company will charge an escalating fee to pick up garbage and recyclables from Union Bridge's 460 customers. The contract does not include bulk trash pickup.

The service will cost the town $24,159 in 1998-1999, $24,398 in 1999-2000 and $24,816 in 2000-2001, excluding the county landfill tipping fee, which will increase from $45 to $47 a ton July 1.

Town officials estimate that despite the increased tipping fee, the new contract will reduce the town's total refuse collection costs by about $10,000 over three years.

Union Bridge now spends about $51,000 a year on trash collection, including the tipping fee.
