Jupiter, Fla., Votes to Keep Waste Management as Hauler

The Town Council has rejected Advanced Disposal’s bid proposal and voted unanimously to keep Waste Management as the town’s hauler.

In November 2016, the Town of Jupiter, Fla., considered its hauler options and decided to keep its current hauler Waste Management. This decision sparked a debate with Advanced Disposal Services, which filed a bid protest asking the Town of Jupiter to void its contract with Waste Management and award the contract to Advanced Disposal.

Now, after months of consideration, the Town Council has rejected Advanced Disposal’s bid proposal and voted unanimously to keep Waste Management as the town’s hauler.

Advanced Disposal Services Solid Waste Southeast Inc. applied to replace Houston-based Waste Management, which has had the residential and commercial contract with Jupiter for about 30 years.

No residents spoke for or against the proposal before the vote at the Tuesday meeting.
