Representatives of two companies made their pitch to the Milpitas City Council last week to dispose garbage when Republic Service’s 30-year contract to perform that work expires next year.
At the Special Milpitas City Council Meeting on Jan 12th discussing the new Garbage Disposal Bids for the City of Milpitas, two companies submitted proposals to the city. Waste Management which would dump at the Guadalupe Landfill. Green Waste which use the Monterey Landfill with a transfer station in N. San Jose. Both proposals include convenient options similar to the existing free dump days. The Monterey Landfill had zero odor complaints and Guadalupe Landfill had 34 alleged/no confirmed. Newby Landfill has over 2000 odor complaints recorded by BAAQMD over the last year alone. Although Republic did not submit a disposal proposal, they did say that they may provide one as part of the collections proposal.

Milpitas City Council Invites Residents to Attend Jan. 12th Workshop to Learn About Options for New Solid Waste Disposal Contract, Provide Feedback to City Officials Milpitas community’s opinions and feedback are essential to city’s ultimate success in selecting the best waste management providers to fit resident needs Milpitas, California – Milpitas City Council will be holding its first in a series of community workshops to keep residents up to date and solicit feedback on its ongoing process to issue a new waste management contract for the City. The workshop will take place on January 12th starting at 7:00pm at Milpitas City Hall.
A class-action lawsuit that alleges noxious odors, dust and air pollution emanate from the Newby Island Landfill and Resource Recovery Park on the Milpitas-San Jose border and harm area residents here has been tentatively settled.
The City of Milpitas’ history with periodic smells that waft our way from the direction of Newby Island garbage disposal grounds goes back almost to the 1954 birth of the city. Although there were far fewer residents who were holding their noses at that time, the dumpsite owned then by the local San Jose Scavenger Co. was a sad mess.
