For many years, the City of Ruston has had its own solid waste utility for hauling garbage, recycling and yard waste for the residents and businesses in Ruston. Over the past several years, operational costs have increased, and the long-term sustainability of the services is at risk. Therefore, the City decided to issue a Request for Proposals (RFP) to contract out these services. The City issued the RFP earlier this year for solid waste services and Murrey’s Disposal Company, Inc. responded to the RFP and has offered to provide these services (garbage, recycle and yard waste) in a manner that will provide good services to the customers in Ruston at fair rates. This also brings all Ruston customers into the same system. We have had Tacoma serving some commercial customers due to the lack of Ruston having the proper equipment for providing this service. This service change will take effective August 1, 2020
Murrey’s Disposal and the City of Ruston will work hard to ensure this is a smooth transition for all of our residents and we look forward to a great partnership. Please watch for a Murrey’s Welcome Packet to be mailed to you soon.
