The Town Council last week voted unanimously to authorize Mayor Bridge Littleton to execute a contract with Bates Trucking for the collection and disposal of refuse and recyclables.
In December, Waste Management informed the town that it had sold its Northern Virginia contracts to Bates. When that happened, the Town Council did not vote to approve a contract with Bates. Instead, Bates agreed to work as a subcontractor to Waste Management in Middleburg, which Town Administrator Danny Davis was able to approve without council consent. On Jan. 10, the council voted to continue using Bates as Waste Management’s subcontractor for a few months to assess its performance. According to a staff report, “staff has been pleased with the performance and responsiveness of Bates” since the company took over on Jan. 2.
