Earlier this week, Adams County, Miss., voted unanimously to renew its solid waste collection contract with Waste Pro for another year. This contract extension is the second and final contract extension offering included with the contract’s original 3 ½-year contract.
After the contract expires next year, the county will have to seek out bids for a new contract for its solid waste collection services.

Adams County decided Monday to renew its trash collection agreement with Waste Pro for another year.
Board President Mike Lazarus said Adam County’s solid waste hauling rate compared favorably to other places in southwest Mississippi.
“Looking at the rates we are paying monthly compared to everyone else in southwest Mississippi, we are $3 and $4 lower a month right now,” Lazarus said. “I am scared to death to bid it out because I can’t see it coming in any lower.”
