Onyx Agrees To New Three-Year Trash Contract

After balking at initial contract discussions, the Memphis City Council gave final approval for a new three-year contract with Onyx Waste Services, soon to be known as Veolia Environmental Services (VES).

A representative from the companyís Macon office was on hand at the June 1 city council meeting when bids were reviewed from the cityís current provider as well as from Allied Waste of Quincy, IL.

The council voted 4-0 to accept the bid from Onyx.

The new contract represents a 95-cent price increase for residential customers of the service. Citizens are entitled to weekly collection of no more than four 30-gallon trash containers at a monthly fee of $9.45. The service had formerly cost $8.50.

However the new contract offer did eliminate a fuel surcharge as well as scheduled price increases that the company had been asking for during previous contract discussions.

Senior citizens will actually witness a price decrease as service charges will drop from $8.00 a month to $7.95 for citizens 65 years of age or older.

Allied Waste had bid the service with a rate of $9.99 for residential and $8.99 for senior citizens.

The Quincy company did offer slightly better rates for commercial customers ($15.00 compared to the $16.50 Onyx will charge) and slightly lower dumpster rates, but the council noted that the biggest impact would be on residential customers, making the Onyx bid the most economical for the city as a whole.
