Most residents on our street are elderly and disabled ... some of us have asked for the smaller containers, but still don't have them. The big ones are sitting on the street as of October 30th. I thought Republic did a great job; the workers were always helpful and polite, always making sure our containers were not blocking mail boxes or left in the street. They have already picked up their old containers, but we're still waiting on the huge, bullky, heavy containers to be switched.

Hoover Garbage Pickup

I hope Santek continues to provide a high level of service that I have experienced with our current provider, Republic. Their staff has always been most courteous and helpful.

New garbage company

We have a great garbage company right here in our own backyard called Trash Taxi. It is locally owned and operated. If I'm not mistaken, they currently service the cities of Pelham and Chelsea as well as Hunter Street Baptist Church.

Cart Size

We senior citizens don't need the huge carts that most people use. Republic has let us use a second recycling cart (marked with Garbage pick up on the sides) for our garbage cart. Will Santek allow the same?

Garbage Cans

Will the new company provide smaller cans for recycling? This is important for residents with small garages.

Did you give Republic the opportunity to match the bid?

I was once in sales and I would like to know if you gave Republic the opportunity to match the Santek bid? Republic is out of state. Is Santek local? If so, why would you not shop local. Just asking. Because I didn't like this done to me when I was in sales.

In a bid situation fro public services by law you can not price match. Which ensures no collusion and bid rigging.
