Forrest County awards trash removal contract to Waste Pro

FORREST COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Beginning in Feb. 2013 Forrest County residents will see a reduction in what they pay to have their trash picked up.

Thursday morning the supervisors announced they had accepted the bid of Waste Pro of Sumrall to take over residential trash removal in the county. Waste Pro's bid of $11.65 per household, per month was the lowest of five bids submitted to the county. Customers can expect their trash removal fee to be cut by one-third.

Enviro's contract with the county expires Feb. 1, and that is when Waste Pro's five-year contract begins.

Waste Pro's Division Manager Reggie Collier says the company will do everything they need to do to ensure the transition is smooth and does not inconvenience the customers.

"We will continue that once a week service and whatever day the customer has been picked up on will remain the same," said Collier. "We aren't going to change anything the customers are getting right now."

Residents should receive their new trash container a week prior to the beginning of the new service.
