Hampstead's Town Council awarded a three-year trash contract to Hughes Trash Removal of Hampstead last night.Although Hughes was not the lowest bidder, council members agreed to award the local company the contract because, they said, they were familiar with the company and had been pleased with its service.For the past three years, Hampstead's trash has collected by Waste Management Inc. as part of a unified contract with half a dozen Carroll municipalities. Before that, Hughes collected the town's trash.

Most Howard County residents would pay about $50 a year more for trash and recycling services in County Executive Ken Ulman's upcoming budget request, now that a County Council bill combining those services has been approved. The increase for western county residents would be about $15 less because they don't receive yard waste collection service, Ulman said. If the council agrees to Ulman's proposal, Ulman plans to use some of the fee increase and general fund money to pay for thousands of heavy-duty wheeled recycling bins for residents countywide as part of a long-term strategy to reduce the cost of refuse disposal.

City officials hope the county commissioners will take notice of theresults of unified bids for trash removal and recycling sought by Carroll's towns.Opened Monday, the low bid -- from Haden Trash Removal Inc. of Glyndon -- would provide once-a-week separate pickup of trash and recyclables for $44.08 per residential unit. That fee, coupled with the proposed increase in the county's tipping fee from $15 to$40 per ton of trash would mean an annual bill of about $85 for Westminster residents.

Ecker said last night that he will start immediately to refine a proposal to charge residents a minimum annual fee of $100 to remove a bag of trash weekly but that the public should not expect results "overnight.""I will meet with staff to consider our options in thinking through the plan" to make Howard the first county in the state to charge residents for the amount of trash they generate, Mr. Ecker said."We will be trying to be fair and equitable to the most people possible.
