Let's Talk Trash - Trash & Recycling Services Survey


The Town of Poolesville, through a contract with Bates Trucking Trash Removal, Inc., currently provides Town residents twice-weekly curbside refuse pickup, weekly recycling and yard waste collection, and certain other occasional services related to larger or specialized items.  The Town's original contract with Bates expires at the end of June, 2022.  The contract is Poolesville's largest single operating expenditure annually. 
The Town Commission intends to issue a competitive Request for Proposal (RFP) for a new multi-year contract for these services.  Whatever vendor is selected is expected to provide efficient, courteous, cost-effective and environmentally responsible service. 
Poolesville is seeking resident input on the overall trash and recycling program in order to help shape and inform the Commission's decision-making as staff drafts the RFP document.  The survey includes questions about the current levels of service, as well as whether any changes or improvements should be considered as part of a new contract. 
Your participation in this survey is greatly appreciated!
