The City of Austin in May announced we would be accepting bids for a new sanitation company. Our current sanitation company L&L informed us in April that they would not renew the agreement. During the process, we asked for new bids to include services we currently do not offer. In June the City of Austin awarded the 5 year contract to Waste Connections out of Heber Springs. There will be some changes that coincide with changing companies. The City of Austin starting in September will be delivering 96 gallon plastic carts to each resident. Along with providing carts, new services will also be added: grass clippings, leaves and tree limbs. We ask that patience and understanding be given to us at City Hall. We will work to make the transition as smooth as possible.
