Leaves Still Being Picked Up in Centralia
City Manager Dan Ramey says even though CWI/Republic crews worked throughout the holidays to catch up on leaf removal, that he still gives the company a "poor grade" when it comes to their performance this season. The city's contract with the company expires at the end of this year, and Ramey says they will be seeking bids from several different companies and intend to seek out companies that will be able to provide a backup truck in case of a breakdown during leaf season.
CWI/Republic Services has vowed to continue their routes until all of the leaves are gone. The delays have been so extensive that it has taken crews weeks to pickup a single route's leaves--routes that would have normally taken a day.
