Trash talk takes center stage at Joplin City Council meeting
The City Council voted Monday night to reject Waste Corporation of Missouri's bid and return the contract to Republic. City officials had recommended the Waste Corporation of Missouri's bid, but the council rejected that recommendation after discovering the company had sent two separate bids to the city.
Under the deal with Republic, trash rates for Joplin residents will be reduced from $12.50 a month to $11.18.
