California Waste Solutions
A tentative agreement has been reached to settle a dispute over the city of Oakland’s garbage contract.
After Waste Management lost a $1 billion contract to pick up Oakland’s garbage, the company is trying to put a ballot measure on the November ballot to overturn the city’s decision. Officials are accusing Waste Management of dirty tricks as they attempt to gather signatures.
A new garbage contract could cause sticker shock for Oakland residents. The city is recommending the council approve a new contract with Waste Management that would increase fees by 50 percent.
Authorities are investigating the discovery of a human head found at an Oakland recycling yard Wednesday morning.
