LAKE COMO — A resolution soliciting bid proposals for a new recycling collection service contract, for a three- to five-year term, was passed at the mayor and council meeting on Nov. 1.
The current recycling contract for Lake Como goes to Dec. 31, with the borough now having to solicit bids for a new contract.
Councilman Chris D’Antuano brought up the question of whether the bid should include pricing for more frequent pickup.
Borough Administrator Andrew Huisman said that the current bid write-up is now for every other week, but Borough Attorney Marguerite Schaffer said that the borough can put out two bids to compare the pricing.
Council President Douglas Witte asked whether every-week pick-up was only during the summer months, with every other week taking place during the rest of the year.
