Las Vegas City Council Denies Appeal from Simple Environmental Services Group

Simple Environmental Services Group COO Danielle Basson filed an appeal against the City Council's decision to expand the city's contract with Republic Services.

Earlier this year, Republic Services, the city of Las Vegas’ longtime waste hauler, proposed a contract extension that would extend its contract until 2031. And despite pressure from some local groups and legislation under consideration that would affect how solid waste agreements are negotiated in Nevada, the Las Vegas City Council approved the proposed contract extension in April.

Shortly following that decision, Simple Environmental Services Group COO Danielle Basson filed an appeal to the council action, stating the city’s business impact study was insufficient under state standards and that it didn’t adequately consider or underestimated the economic effect of the move on businesses.

The City Council denied Basson’s appeal on Wednesday.
