Town of Windsor votes to take their garbage to Petaluma!

Divided Windsor Town Council awards $52 million garbage contract to San Jose company

 A divided Windsor Town Council has awarded the town’s garbage collection contract to a new company despite complaints from other bidders that the process was unfair and likely to be challenged in court. On a 3-2 vote late Wednesday, the council assigned the hauling contract for the next 10 years to Green Waste Recovery Inc., with a majority of the council citing the lower rates and environmental practices of the San-Jose based company.
But council members who dissented raised concerns over Green Waste’s plans for a proposed transfer station in Petaluma for recycled materials that is not yet permitted.

“The issue in Petaluma bothers me,” said Councilman Bruce Okrepkie, who said he was concerned with the permitting process, not the threat of legal action.
