City approves CalMet waste management contract

May 30, 2017

The City Council recently voted to extend Cerritos' contract with CalMet Services, Inc. for solid waste management through December 31, 2027.

Under the agreement, CalMet will introduce new changes, including free residential battery curbside collection and bus-stop trash service at the City-owned transit amenities. An organics recycling program will also be implemented.

Residential rates for trash collection will remain the same until July 2018. CalMet will also assume street-sweeping services in 2018 at no charge to the City. This saves the City of Cerritos approximately $470,000 for the 2017-2018 fiscal year.
