At their meeting last Tuesday evening, Cadiz City Council members voted 5 – 0 to approve Clarksville Disposal – the lowest of three bidders – to continue to collect garbage. They also voted to accept a $72,000 bid from Clarksville Disposal to purchase all of the trash containers and equipment the City recently purchased from Madisonville Disposal.

Clarksville Disposal submitted a base rate of $11.88 per month per container. Princeton-based Freedom Waste submitted a rate of $12.95 per month per container. And Clarksville, Tenn., based Queen City Disposal submitted a rate of $16.25 per month per container.
