Mayor's Office Press Release

Statement by Mayor Turner about Curbside Recycling Contract

July 21, 2017 -- “After visiting with members of City CounciI about our effort to choose a curbside recycling company to handle Houston's needs, I have decided to re-open the process for the four companies that advanced to the interview stage.'

“FCC, Republic Services, Waste Management Inc. and Independent Texas Recyclers will be allowed to present a 'Best And Final Offer,' and then the superior proposal will be chosen.'

“This action is designed to put to rest the concerns raised by members of Council, which must approve the contract before it takes effect.'

“Whatever the result, my only allegiance is to this City and I will always seek what is in its best interest.”
