On Tuesday, July 16, 2019 North St. Paul City Council approved a new garbage hauler for residential customers in North St. Paul. The current provider, Republic Services Inc., will no longer be the provider as their contract will expire on August 31, 2019.
City Council directed staff to research other providers in the metro area. Staff have reached an agreement with Tennis Sanitation, LLC which will start in September. Tennis Sanitation, LLC is a family owned and operated local company who has been serving customers since 1966. Their office and facilities are located in St. Paul Park.
The City will have ownership of all garbage, recycling and yard waste carts. This will be a benefit to residents as a hauler will no longer need to charge a "cart rental fee". The new carts carry a 10-year full replacement warranty. City staff has been working with Rehrig Pacific Company to purchase the carts. The city was notified recently that they have been awarded a $100,000 grant from Ramsey County for the purchase of recycling carts.
Extra container inventory will be stored and maintained by the City’s contracted hauler. Delivery of the new carts will begin on or around August 19, 2019 and will be completed by August 30, 2019 at the latest.
