The Flint city council is expected to vote on a new trash pick-up contract Monday.
For weeks, two competing garbage hauling companies have been emptying Flint’s trash cans.
Flint’s mayor and city council spent months arguing over which company should get the contract. A majority of the city council wanted to keep Republic Services. Mayor Karen Weaver insisted her choice, Rizzo Environmental Services, had a lower bid.
After weeks of court ordered negotiations, city leaders agreed to give Republic Services a one-year contract.
