If your schedule permits, the Village would like to invite you to the Village Hall for an Open House from 10 AM to 11:30 AM on Saturday, September 15th. Over the past 14 months, the Village has been working on securing a single hauler for residential trash collection in the community. On the morning of Saturday, September 15th, the three companies that are interested in being the sole refuse hauler for our community will be at the Village Hall to meet residents and answer questions.
The Village Council began working on this project in June of 2017 when Dent Refuse was no longer providing service to the community. At that time the Village started receiving concerns from residents that specific services, such as the convenient disposal of large/bulky items, was no longer available. These concerns were also coupled with fears of the number of heavy vehicles on the streets of the community.
Since that time, this has been discussed at no less than 11 Village Council meetings, refined by the Master Plan survey this spring, and put in place by the adoption of an ordinance earlier this summer. That ordinance requires companies hauling and disposing of residential trash to be licensed by the Village. The adopted ordinance also requires companies to provide different service options that the resident may select from, as well as large/bulky item disposal.
The Village's adopted ordinance still allows each resident to select the service level that is appropriate for their needs and to be billed directly by the company providing the service. The Village of Lake Isabella will not be billing for services or mandating a single type of service for the community.
Following the adoption of the licensing ordinance, the Village publicly advertised and solicited proposals from companies interested in providing residential trash collection service. Invitations to submit proposals were sent to Granger, King’s Disposal, Waste Management, Republic Services, and Central Sanitation. Proposals were received from three of those companies on August 3rd and reviewed by the Village Council on August 8th and August 21st.
The result is three companies that have expressed an interest in being an exclusive hauler for Lake Isabella. Those three companies include two that are currently providing service to the community; Granger and King’s Disposal. In addition to those two companies, Republic Services is also interested in being an exclusive hauler for the community.
