City Trash Pickup Changes Companies

Starting next Monday Lampasas will have a new trash pickup contractor. May 1st will be the first official day for the new guys, Waste Connections, to come for refuse pickup at homes and businesses in our town. No one’s service is expected to change. The same days and times for
carrying out your garbage and having it picked up will be in effect.

The City says the new trash contractor has worked well with the old company and the City to help make the transition as smooth as possible. The change in companies appeared to have nothing to do with service as there weren’t any real problems with the current company. It was
merely a matter of economy and services offered. The City went out for bids on trash service and the new company, Waste Connections, offered a slightly lower price and, in fact, a few extra benefits that the old company didn’t. It appeared that Waste Connections was a little
larger company and seemed to have more current contracts in Texas.

So-o, it seemed that the diligent move was to go with what appears to be a better deal. Our trash pickup service will now be reduced slightly on our utility bills.If there is any possible disruption or change to your individual service, call City Hall 512-556-6831 and ask to talk to Becky; or Waste Connections at 1-800-350-3024.
