Now how do we get better? One, encouraging the city council, mayor , city manager all involved in this new contract to take a big Sooner step back. Suggestion 1. For 30 days, allow anyone who wishes to become a part of this to sign up for the charge and pickup for the duration of the new contract (3,4,5 years, whatever is decided.) Once you sign up you are locked in. Repost the bid process for the numbers that sign up. As a starting point. ... Simple to administer for the pick up people. See container, pick it up. If and when additional people may want to sign up, have language in the contract to address that and reimburse recycle folks accordingly. Not too difficult. In the new contract language, utilize city workers, volunteers, whoever to check and see usage rates for recycle pick up, so that the city is not being overcharged. Just an a idea.
