Sign Petition Urging Las Vegas to Give You Choice in Trash Collection!
City of Las Vegas has given a monopoly franchise to Republic Services
to pick up trash from every residential and commercial property in Las
You can’t do business with anyone else…even if you want to.
other communities, residents and businesses can choose from two or more
competitors. But the Las Vegas City Council is considering extending
the Republic contract for an additional 15 years...
Without allowing any competitors to submit a competing bid!
In fact, over the last few DECADES, Republic Services has NEVER had to compete for a contract or contract extension anywhere in southern Nevada.
Worse, as proposed Republic would cut residential pick-up service from twice a week to once a week. With no reduction in your monthly bill.
the City of Las Vegas would open up the trash collection market to any
reputable company and let consumers pick and choose who they want to do
But if the city is going to restrict the market
and issue an exclusive monopoly contract to only one company, such a
contract – in the interest of good government and consumer protection – should at least be open to competitive bidding.

to issue an RFP (Request for Proposal) rather than “rubber-stamping” a
contract extension to Republic Services.
