Indiana Court of Appeals Voids Indy Recycling DealIndiana Court of Appeals Voids Indy Recycling Deal
February 26, 2016
The Indiana Court of Appeals on Wednesday found that the city of Indianapolis violated competitive bidding laws when the Ballard administration awarded a long-term recycling contract to Covanta in 2014.
The 19-page decision reversed a lower court ruling and ordered the Marion Superior Court to void a deal that would have brought a $45 million commingled trash-recycling center to Indianapolis.
Attempts to reach former Mayor Greg Ballard for comment were unsuccessful Wednesday evening.
