The City of Bellevue, in conjunction with the City of Dayton, contracts with Republic Services (formerly CSI) for its garbage pickup in the two Cities. The schedule by street for pickup days can be found HERE. Currently, homeowners and business owners pay $112.20 per unit for this service and it is included on property tax bills mailed each October. This amount will increase to $116.64 in 2014 for the remaining 2 years of the contract which expires on 6/30/2016.
Our annual fee for garbage collection is comparable with collection fees in other communities:
|Alexandria: $155.50||Cold Spring $126.92||Covington $122.50||Crescent Springs $151.44|
|Crestview $164.89||Edgewood $ 201.48||Elsmere $163.20||Erlanger $ 111.12|
|Ft. Mitchell $ 175.20||Ft. Thomas $ 115.00||Ft. Wright $ 143.52||Independence $ 136.00|
|Ludlow $ 166.60||Newport $ 194.00||Park Hills $ 155.76||Ryland Heights $ 113.64|
|Taylor Mill $ 125.00||Union $ 135.60||Villla Hills $ 143.28||Wilder $ 150.00|
Please note that due to the number of collections per week, recycling activities, and other factors, the annual price may not be a direct comparison.
When the contract was bid out in 2007, recycling services were bid out as well. However, the Cities declined to exercise the option at that time. Citizens were left to pursue recycling collection with Republic (then CSI) on their own.
The contract defines how much and what type of waste can be collected:
Residential Service shall be defined as two (2) 90-gallon toters or four (4) 30-gallon containers or the equivalent of one (1) cubic yard of municipal solid waste per unit with an approximate weight of 70 pounds. There are different rules for Commercial Service.
TYPES OF WASTE:
1. Residential solid waste- any material such as garbage, rubbish, trash, or similar material generated as a result of normal household activities.
2. Food wastes- garbage defined as the organic waste of animal, fish, vegetable, or fruit matter resulting from the storing, processing, preparation, or cooking of food for human consumption.
3. Rubbish and trash – combustibles such as paper, wood, yard waste, bagged leaves, and similar material and non-combustibles such as metal, glass, stone and other materials but excluding construction waste. Also included is tree and brush material which must be bundled into lengths not exceeding five (5) feet long, nor more than eighteen (18) inches in diameter.
4. Bulky wastes – household furniture and appliances such as chairs, tables, stoves, refrigerators, and hot water heaters, etc not containing Freon or CFCs. Note that the City requires all mattresses and furniture to be enclosed in plastic before pickup. This is to prevent the spread of bedbugs.
WHAT IS NOT ACCEPTED
1. Dangerous materials or substances such as poisons, acids, caustics, infected materials, and explosives.
2. Materials resulting from the repair, excavation, or construction of buildings or structures, such as earth, plaster, mortar, concrete, roofing material, lumber, plumbing fixtures, and other similar materials.
3. Materials that have not been prepared for collection in accordance with the provisions of these specifications or City Ordinances.
4. The solid waste resulting from industrial processes.
5. Human or animal body wastes.
6. Medical waste including, but not limited to, needles, syringes, blood, plasma, and bones.
8. Other waste as prohibited by federal, state or local laws and regulations.
The collection crews use discretion in determining what they do and don’t pick up. Sometimes their discretion doesn’t agree with the rules and the desires of the homeowners and trash is left. If your trash is not picked up, PLEASE contact 431-8888 to report a missed pickup. Terry Baute, our Code Enforcement Officer, follows up with the homeowner and Republic if necessary. The Republic crew stops in at the City building each day as well to discuss what has and has not been picked up in the City.
If there are concerns or praises regarding trash collection in general, please use the feedback form on the website located HERE. The unexplained missed pickups and your feedback forms (both positive and negative) are used to maintain and manage our relationship with Republic Services.
Finally, work on the garbage collection RFP will begin in the near future. The first step in this process is determining what services the City wants to include in the bid document. The City views recycling and the use of a uniform toter as potential new priorities for the next contract period. What services would you like to see included in the next waste collection contract? Please use the comment section below to express your priorities.
