San Francisco revokes Recology contract
Recology's contract with the city of San Francisco was revoked.
San Francisco has revoked a 10-year, $112 million contract with the waste-hauling company Recology Inc. after three lawsuits were filed, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Two of the suits demanded an environmental review and a third from a rival company alleged an unfair bidding process.
San Francisco uses Recology to haul garbage to the Altamont Landfill, which is owned by Waste Management Inc.
Waste Management had demanded the city scrap the agreement and open the process for rebidding.
In Portland, Recology was last year involved in a controversial plan to put a food waste collection site in the Lents neighborhood.
