Waste Management questions legality of New Paltz single-hauler contract

An attorney from the hauler Waste Management said the law, which requires all New Paltz residents to receive trash pickup from another hauler. County Waste, may not be legal because it amounts to a franchise, the proper process for that wasn’t followed. The mayor disagrees. “Imagine if losers of all our various publicly bid projects just used their muscle to intimidate when they weren’t awarded contracts because they bid too high,” he said.
