Update on Proposed Extension for Waste Connections

This is an update to my previous article on this topic.

At their October 24, 2023 meeting, the Crestwood Board of Aldermen considered an extension of the contract with Waste Connections. There were a lot of questions raised and answered, and ultimately the Board approved the first reading of the ordinance, with the final reading scheduled for their next meeting on November 14.

It was my intention to post this update and explain all the details that were covered. However, The Call newspaper did a great job covering everything, so instead, I recommend reading that article (link HERE).

If this second reading passes, then Waste Connections will likely begin delivery of new trash carts later this year and we can start using them. The “restrictions” of the new contract won’t begin until March 1, 2024, so we’ll all have time to get ready and determine what size carts we each prefer to use. More information will be provided from Waste Connections and the City of Crestwood.
